Events in Art and Archaeology

MADRID, SPAIN  •  Museo Nacional del Prado  •  24 November 2015 - 27 March 2016

The heir to Raphael and Poussin, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’ work anticipates both Picasso and anatomical distortion in art, inspiring the revitalisation of the 19th-century European art schools, particularly the Spanish.

The exhibition offers a precise chronological presentation of Ingres’ work but also pays particular attention to his complex relationship with portraiture (characterised byhis simultaneous rejection and admiration for it), which is juxtaposed with his ongoing aim of being primarily recognised as a history painter.

The Divine Morales
MADRID, SPAIN  •  Museo Nacional del Prado  •  1 October 2015 - 10 January 2016

Luis de Morales was one of the most original and recognisable artists of the Spanish Renaissance and a key reference point in painting in Extremadura in the second half of the 16th century. Morales was considered to have his own particular style, a distinguishable “brand name” that appears in numerous inventories and is represented in many Spanish and international collections. Morales’s most important and characteristic works were widely known due to the existence of his own studio and to the repetitions of them by other painters and followers. Only El Greco can be considered a comparable phenomenon in Spain from approximately 1585 onwards in terms of the dissemination of his art and his commercial success.

This exhibition highlights the artistic activity and personality of Luis de Morales almost a century after the Museodel Prado presented the first monographic exhibition on the artist. The Museum has 23 panels by the artist and his studio, making it the most important holding of Morales in terms of quantity and quality.
