EXPERIENCE THE 19th CENTURY

 

Open all year

 

The Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, which is on long-term free loan to the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga, is a rich and varied one. It opens with a series of Old Masters including Zurbarán’s depiction of Saint Marina, and continues with a series of groups of works that together allow for a comprehensive overview of the history of the principal genres within 19th-century Spanish painting, in particularly that produced in Andalusia.

 

Romantic landscape painting, represented by the work of Genaro Pérez Villaamil and Manuel Barrón, leads on to scenes of popular life in Andalusia by the Domínguez Bécquers and by Manuel Cabral Aguado Bejarano. Artistic focus on authentic Spanish culture and customs evolved over the course of the century and genre painting of this type gave way to the preciosista painting developed by Marià Fortuny. Similarly, the genre of landscape evolved from Romanticism to Realism.Finally, in a rich and varied section that concludes this route around the Collection, works by Darío de Regoyos, Joaquín Sorolla, Hermen Anglada i Camarasa, Francisco Iturrino and Ignacio Zuloaga reveal the way in which fin-de-siècle Spanish painting established itself internationally.
