During this summer time you can visit not only the fantastic collections of the museums at Madrid’s Walk of Art, but also a lot of interesting temporary exhibitions.
Murillo y Justino de Neve: the Art of friendship.
This exhibition brings together a group of 17 late works by Murillo that were commissioned by Justino de Neve, a canon of Seville cathedral, an important patron of art and personal friend of Murillo’s. There are loans from London, Paris, Houston, Madrid and Seville. Open until 30 September.
Late Rafael – until 16 September
Late Raphael is one of the most important exhibitions ever to be devoted to the artist and his studio and the first to focus on his final years, during the time Raphael became the most influential painter in Western art.
This exhibition includes a total of 74 works, the majority of them never previously exhibited in Spain. It presents a chronological survey of Raphael’s artistic activities from the start of the pontificate of Leo X (1513) to the artist’s death in 1520, as well as analyzes the activities of his principal assistants, Giulio Romano and Gianfrancesco Penni, up to 1524.
Until 16 September you can visit the exhibition “Edward Hopper”, which brings together the largest and most ambitious selection of works by the US artist ever to be shown in Europe, with loans from major museums and institutions.
This exhibition in Madrid includes 73 works and offers an analysis of the artist’s work divided in two different parts. The first opens with Hopper’s time in the studio of Robert Henri at the New York School of Art and covers the years of his training and the second part focuses on Hopper’s mature work.
Reina Sofía Museum
Besides its magnificent collection, you can enjoy this summer at Reina Sofia Museum three temporary exhibitions: Sharon Hayes: Talk; Rosemarie Trockel: A cosmos; and Nacho Criado: Collaborating Agents.
CaixaForum: William Blake
Until 21 October CaixaForum houses an exhibition dedicated to the great British artist William Blake that shows us a retrospective of the artist works and his posterior impact on British art.
Besides Blake’s works, the exhibition offers us the opportunity to see some of the works of renowned British artists influenced by him: the most immediate ones, the Victorian symbolists and more recently, the Romantics of the 19th Century.
