Exhibition: Mediterranean. A reinvented Arcadia. From Signac to Picasso

The Mediterranean Sea is the common element connecting tradition and artistic modernity in early 20th century art. Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Catalan Noucentisme, Fauvism, and Classicism are represented in this exhibition in over 60 works by Spanish and French artists.

The exhibition brings together creations by painters and sculptors including Signac, Matisse, Bonnard, Picasso, Sunyer, Torres-García, Sorolla, Anglada-Camarasa, Mir, and others. Figure painting, mythological subjects, landscapes, and genre scenes, are all part of an artistic debate between a Classicist revival and an explosion of avant-garde colour.

The show is divided into two parts: the first is conceptual, based on the Classical tradition as a source of artistic inspiration, and the second focuses on the Mediterranean, the heart of a more hedonistic experience.
