Art lovers! With a single admission ticket to the MAPFRE Foundation, Madrid’s cultural hotspot, dive right into the significant movements of artistic modernity from Impressionism to Surrealism. For more than three decades, Fundación MAPFRE has been one of the central points on Madrid's cultural agenda for its exhibitions of Plastic Arts and Photography. Its program includes painting and sculpture exhibitions focused on great protagonists like Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso, Degas, and Chagall, and the main movements of artistic modernity such as Impressionism, Vanguards, and Surrealism. There are also photography exhibitions ranging from the great masters of the 20th century including Atget, Evans, Winogrand, Strand, and others to those who represent the best expression of artistic photography today. The Foundation is located in the Palace of the Duchess of Medina de las Torres, built between 1881 and 1884, a very representative building of architecture Exhibitions to Look Out For Don’t miss out on ongoing exhibitions like Louis Stettner’s photography show featuring over 190 pictures depicting the aesthetics of New York, but with a poetic vision of urban French traditions. Anastasia Samoylova’s 'Image Cities', which also happens to be the winner of the KBr Photo Award by MAPFRE Foundation, is a unique visual study of urban landscapes. Witness Catalonia in all its glory between 1871 and 1872 captured by Jules Ainaud. Besides these noteworthy exhibitions, the Foundation has a lot more in store! From 22 Sep 2023 to 7 Jan 2024 Medardo Rosso. Pioneer of modern sculpture Deeply misunderstood in his day, valued only by those at the cutting edge of art, the work of Medardo Rosso (Turin, 1858-Milan, 1928) is today extremely innovative and ahead of its time. The artist, who preferred to leave Italy and flee from academicism in search of Parisian cosmopolitanism, was a visionary who, with his more experimental work, which is the focus of this exhibition, proposed a break with the sculptural tradition, advancing the aesthetic approaches that would later be followed by the great sculptors of the 20th century. Sorolla and Summer. Summer leisure on the beach is one of the themes that runs through the entire work of Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923). Always captured from life, the depictions of working at the sea and summer leisure on the beach are probably the most popular in his oeuvre and are also an interesting testimony to the evolution of the sea environment in relation to its therapeutic properties and the emergence of summer as a period of entertainment and sociability throughout the 19th century. Sorolla and Summer presents a careful selection of forty works (half of them small-format) on this essential theme in the career of the great Valencian artist. Mathieu Pernot. Document / Monument With an unconventional and alternative approach, the work of Mathieu Pernot (1972) explores the margins of society through themes that are recurrently and transversally intertwined in his areer: migrants, displaced persons, victims of war, the gipsy...His images incorporate elements of documentary photography and archive work to end up conveying a vision of these realities far removed from univocal or immutable interpretations. Document/Monument is the first retrospective exhibition to be presented in Spain of a work that has already been recognized by relevant awards (the Nadar in 2013, the Niépce in 2014 and, more recently, in 2019, the prestigious Henri Cartier-Bresson) that place Pernot among the most prominent names on the panorama of contemporary photography. From 1 Feb 2024 to 5 May 2024 Chagall: A cry for freedom Marc Chagall (1887-1985) spanned two world wars and an exile, deeply rooted in 20th-century history. A symbol of uprooting, he journeyed from white Russia to France, Germany to Palestine, the U.S. to Mexico, finally settling by the Mediterranean. This exhibition, a collaboration between La Piscine – Musée d'Art et d'Industrie André Diligent (Roubaix), Fundación MAPFRE, and Musée national Marc Chagall in Nice, offers a comprehensive reading of his work in light of historical events. It's the first complete examination of his production, emphasizing his sociopolitical humanist commitment.
