Francisco Durrio (1868-1940). Sobre las huellas de Gauguin

Curated by historian Javier Gonzez de Durana, the exhibition brings together for the first time almost all the catalogued work by sculptor, precious metal worker and potter Francisco Durrio (Valladolid, 1868-Paris, 1940). Besides exploring the artistic preferred themes, materials and techniques, Francisco Durrio: In the Footsteps of Gauguin also takes a look at the relationships he formed in Montmartre, Paris, where he lived for more than 50 years. Durrio's artistic personality would be difficult to grasp if considered in isolation from the creative and social milieu he thrived. His friends, the artistic community of which he was a part and the stimulating Bohemian world of turn-of-the-century Paris was a decisive factor in shaping the personality of a sculptor who always strived for perfection.
