The exhibition covered the development of the still life in Spanish painting from the Golden Age to contemporary times.

The exhibition reconstructed the Spanish taste for the genre through the works of some of its finest exponents: Sánchez Cotán, Loarte, Van der Hamen, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Pereda, Arellano, Meléndez, Goya, Picasso, Gris, Miró and Dalí.
