Events in Art and Archaeology

MADRID  •  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.

Drawing Versailles: Charles Le Brun (1619-1690)
BARCELONA  •  CaixaForum Barcelona  •  18 November 2015 - 14 February 2016
Three and a half centuries after they were produced, the great decorations made for the Palace of Versailles have lost none of their fascination. Drawing Versailles explores how these decorations were applied from the sketches and drawings created by the French painter Charles Le Brun (1619-1690) for the Staircase of the Ambassadors and the Hall of Mirrors.

José María Yturralde: Meditations on the Void
MALAGA  •  The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga  •  11 December 2015 - 29 February 2016
The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga presents the Spanish premiere of the exhibition Transfinito [Transfinite], featuring the work of artist José María Yturralde (b. Cuenca, 1942). The show curated by Fernando Francés comprises a selection of approximately ten paintings, most of which were created specifically for the exhibition at the CAC Málaga.

Writing about his work, José María Yturralde declares, “My intention has been to achieve an atmosphere of fluid transparency, of communion with a kind of slowly expanding energy, and that energy refers to sensibility and emotion, to a poetic experience. Perhaps there is a spiritual or mystical element, but I don’t believe that the sensuality, the mere life, the here and now of this event is specifically religious or sacred.”  Yturralde lives and works in Valencia.
