20th Century Works on Paper from the FUNDACIÓN MAPRE Collection: Picasso, Ta pies, Miró and Others
Presented by Bass Museum of Art
August 23 - November 2, 2008
This exciting exhibition is comprised of approximately 80 works on paper by some of the 20th century's most renowned Spanish artists, as well as artists from other countries whose careers were impacted by Spain. Rarely seen sketches and illustrations by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Sonia Delaunay, Juan Gris, Picabia and Joaquín Torres-Garcia will be shown. These works on paper show how these artists first honed their talent in drawings and watercolors, and illustrate how the tension between figuration and abstraction dominated the course of art during this period.
Founded in 1975, Fundación Mapfre is one of the most prestigious cultural Spanish foundations that is supported by Mapfre, a Spanish insurance group that develops public programs in Spain and other countries.
