Bilbao en las revistas ilustradas, 1843-1900

During the 19th century, illustrated periodicals spread considerably thanks to the possibilities offered by lithographic and xylographic techniques, which multiplied the creation and spreading of images. The exhibition will bring together almost four hundred images, generated by the romantic interest for monuments, but above all by the military operations around the Siege of Bilbao in the Second Carlist War, which ended on 2 May 1874, and by the industrialisation of the Town. These images appeared on the main periodicals of the period (1843-1900), such as La ilustración Española y Americana, El Mundo Pintoresco, The Illustrated London News, The Graphic and L’Illustration.
