The Museo del Prado and the contemporary artists
On display from 23 September in Room 33 of the Museum is the exhibition The Museo del Prado and Contemporary Artists, comprising 48 works on paper – principally prints, in addition to some photographs – by 24 Spanish artists.
Created by artists of different generations who have used a range of styles and techniques, these works are united by the fact that all of them arise from the direct inspiration of the art in the collection of the Museo del Prado. The exhibition is curated by Francisco Calvo Serraller and organised by the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado thanks to the sponsorship of Japan Tobacco International (JTI).
The artists represented in this exhibition are: Andreu Alfaro, Eduardo Arroyo, Isabel Baquedano, Miquel Barceló, Carmen Calvo, Naia del Castillo, Eduardo Chillida, Cristina García Rodero, Ramón Gaya, Luis Gordillo, Cristina Iglesias, Carmen Laffón, Eva Lootz, Blanca Muñoz, Ouka Leele, Guillermo Pérez Villalta, Isabel Quintanilla, Albert Ràfols-Casamada, Manuel Rivera, Gerardo Rueda, Antonio Saura, Soledad Sevilla, Susana Solano and Gustavo Torner.
