The earliest and most important expression of the concept of “España negra” – “black Spain” – is the prints Goya began making in the late 18th century. His satirical and grim view of society of the day and of the disasters caused by the Peninsular War were universally disseminated and created a new language. Years later, following the events of 1898, the intellectuals of a decadent Spain returned to this language and incorporated it permanently into the country’s artistic imaginary.
Between these two moments, Darío de Regoyos made an essential contribution. The experience of his travels around Spain in 1888 with the Belgian poet Émile Verhaeren was the point of departure for the book España negra, which features texts by the poet and illustrations by the painter, who present a vision of Spanish traditions that is realistic, though not critical. In order to reflect on the implications of the historical and current concept of “España negra”, we have prepared a cycle of films that includes examples from the 1950s to the 1980s in which, nearly two hundred years later, it is possible to trace the presence in Spanish art of that tragic universe and that other less folkloric and amiable Spain.
