Impressionist Gardens

From 16 November 2010 to 13 February 2011

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, and Fundación Caja Madrid

The exhibition Impressionist Gardens, which analyses the development of Impressionist painting of gardens, will include not only works by the leading figures of that movement but also examples by its forerunners, such as Delacroix, Corot and Courbet, as well as that of later painters such as Klimt and Sargent. Through the introduction of hundreds of previously unknown plants and species of flowers from Asia, Africa and South America and the opening to the public of the royal parks, gardens became extremely popular in France from the 1880s onwards. The Impressionists and their followers, with their interest in colour, outdoor effects and preference for subjects from daily life, were certainly interested in the subject and naturally looked to gardens in search of inspiration.

End of the Session 

  • Jean-Léon Gérôme. End of the Session, 1886. Oil on canvas, 33 x 27.4 cm. Private Collection

Jean–Léon Gérôme (1824-1904)

From 01 March to 22 May 2011

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

The exhibition Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904) is the result of an ambitious joint project co-organised by the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Musée d’Orsay and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. It constitutes the first major monographic exhibition to be devoted to this French painter and sculptor since the one held around thirty years ago in the US, and will be based on the detailed art historical studies and catalogues of the artist’s work that have appeared in recent years. In the spring of 2011 Madrid will host a reduced version of the large scale exhibition that has been presented in Los Angeles and Paris over the course of 2010, with a selection of 55 works including some of Gérôme’s most famous compositions. The oils and sculptures on display will reveal all the key characteristics of his art and will allow for an analysis of his theatrical concept of history painting, use of realism, interest in detail evident in his Orientalist works, and use of polychromy in his sculptural oeuvre.

Heroines 

  • Caravaggio. Saint Catherine of Alexandria, ca. 1598. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

Heroines

From 08 March to 05 June 2011

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, and Fundación Caja Madrid

The exhibition Heroines looks at the depiction of women in active roles and at the gender identity crisis in western art. It covers a broad chronological span, from the Renaissance to the present day. In western art, women have all too often been reduced to two prevailing, complementary models; that of mother or that of the object of sexual desire. Other, parallel roles have, however, arisen, in which the female figure has liberated herself from a passive, submissive position in order to become an active subject. Such roles include hunting and athletics exercise, war, political power, and magic and religion, among others. Lone Women, Caryatids, Maenads, Hunters, Amazons, Sibyls and Sorceresses, Martyrs and Mystics, and Women Painters before the Mirror are the titles of the eight sections into which the exhibition is organised, offering a thematic survey of the depiction of woman as active subject.

Gran Vía 

  • Antonio López. The Gran Vía, 1974-1981. Oil on panel,
    90.5 x 93.5 cm. Private collection

Antonio López

From 28 June to 25 September 2011

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

In the summer of 2011 the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza will be holding a comprehensive exhibition of the work of the Spanish artist Antonio López (born Tomelloso, 1936). It will feature oil paintings, drawings and sculptures of some of his most typical subjects such as the interior, the human figure, landscapes and urban views, principally of Madrid, as well as depictions of fruit. In the reality that surrounds him López looks for everyday aspects that he can reproduce in his work, using a slow, highly meditated creative process that aims to capture the essence of the object or landscape epicted.
