Carlos de Haes. Drawings and prints

Paper Art (IV)

Room 33


Carlos de Haes (Brussels, 1826–Madrid, 1898) is one of the most important landscape artists in the second half of the 19th century. From the San Fernando School of Art in Madrid his influence was felt by Aureliano de Beruete, Jaime Morera, and Darío de Regoyos, among others, and in the renovation of the landscape genre in Spanish paintings.

Thanks to the Art on Paper programme over fifty of Haes’s paintings and drawings, which belong to the Museum’s collection, will now be exhibited. Evocations from memory or from nature, preparatory sketches, exercises of the hand, notes taken during travels, drawings for engravings, these works give a most intimate view of the painter’s work through popular landscapes.
