30 Jul 10 REAL(ISMS). NEW FIGURATIVE TRENDS IN SPANISH ART
Until September 4, the Carmen Thyssen Museum Málaga hosts Real(ismos). New figurations in Spanish art between 1918 and 1936, an exhibition that explores, through 86 works by fifty artists, including Dalí, Miró, Picasso and Mallo, a fundamental moment in Spanish modern art: the first firm commitment to artistic renewal and the break with nineteenth-century art, abruptly interrupted by the outbreak of war.
The exhibition, curated by Bárbara García and Alberto Gil, includes a wide representation of realistic and figurative paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and photographs that were made in Spain in the twenties and thirties, a period that was chronologically brief but creatively very intense.
