Uninvited Guests. Episodes on Women, Ideology and the Visual Arts in Spain (1833-1931)

Detail of "Falenas" (1920), by Carlos Verger Fioretti. Oil on canvas. Collection of the Prado Museum © Museo Nacional del Prado

An exhibition examining the role of women in the Spanish art system of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The sometimes epic journey that women were obliged to undertake to free themselves from the limitations imposed on their sex.

The exhibition guides the viewer through a journey structured in two large areas: on one hand, it presents the image of women and their place in society legitimised by the State through awards, exhibitions and museums; and on the other, it maps the secondary role allocated to women by the system.

This second part is made possible by the display of some of the most important artworks produced by women in Spain from the 1830s to the 1930s. These pieces are also organised thematically in an analysis of their different career paths.
