Eduardo Arroyo. With respect for traditions

The Maeght Foundation hosts this major thematic exhibition of Eduardo Arroyo, considered one of the most important Spanish artists of his generation. The exhibition presents 150 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Eduardo Arroyo, from 1964 to the present. Some of the works are among the artist’s best-known, while others have never been seen before, including a series of paintings created especially for this exhibition. Arroyo uses paradox and humour in his paintings, representing humanity through a set of images originating in society, history, art and literature. The result is a highly constructed body of work, attesting to a constant freedom of ideas.
