Rediscovering the Mediterranean
Fundación MAPFRE Madrid from 10 October 2018 to 13 January 2019.
Recoletos Exhibition Hall
In the passage from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, the sea, and specifically the Mediterranean, becomes one of the themes that serve as a motor for the renewal of art.
This exhibition proposes a journey through paintings and sculptures that take the Mediterranean as a landscape but also as culture and idea. It brings together 138 works by 41 artists, among them: Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Renoir, Pierre Bonnard, Joaquín Sorolla, Joaquim Sunyer, Julio González and Giorgio de Chirico.
The exhibition, produced by Fundación MAPFRE, is the result of the collaboration of more than 70 service providers, including museums and private collections. In addition, it is part of the Picasso-Mediterranean international project, an initiative of the Musée national Picasso-Paris.
