Campo Cerrado: Spanish Art 1939–1953

26 April-26 Sept. The Reina Sofia examines Spanish art in the 1940s, with a display of paintings and sculpture.

A complex, contrasting and difficult decade in Spanish history, the 1940s was marked by rising fascism alongside the growing emergence of the modernity movement.

The exhibition is divided into numerous sections: 1939; image and propaganda; from the restoration of academic art to renewal: Eugenio d’Ors; the country and the city: aspects of daily life in autarchic Spain; exiles and expatriates; the return of Miró and the rescue of avant-garde movements in history; from the Escuela de Altamira and Dau al Set; architectural renovation; the abstraction-figuration debate and the official appropriation of the modern.

Mon-Sat 10.00-21.00, Sun 10.00-14.30
