Catalogue of the exhibition Juan Gris, María Blanchar and the cubism curated by Eugenio Carmona.
With its new and innovative argument, the exhibition examines this artistic panorama through more than 60 exhibits of paintings, sculptures, drawings and documentary material. Organised into three sections, the exhibition opens with a dialogue between Gris and Blanchard through a large selection of outstanding examples of their flat, geometrical and synthetic painting. The second section provides a context for their work by juxtaposing it with that of other great 20th-century masters with whom they shared creative horizons. Finally, the third section includes a representation of artists from the first generation of the Spanish avant-garde – Dalí, Moreno Villa, Palencia, Peinado, Ángeles Ortiz and Cossío – who were first introduced to modern art through Cubism, particularly that of Juan Gris.
The bilingual publication with reproductions of all 60 works in the exhibition. The catalogue boasts an exhaustive appendix with the most relevant shows and bibliography and critical essays by Lourdes Moreno and Eugenio Carmona.
