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.
