The Fury of Colour. Francisco Iturrino (1864-1924)
From October 06, 2018 to March 03, 2019
Curated: Lourdes Moreno
This exhibition will offer a new and thorough perspective on the Spanish painter Francisco Iturrino (Santander, 1864 - Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, 1924), who was a key figure in the development of modern art in Spain at the beginning of the 20th century. The show will highlight the artist’s unique style which was based on his own creative interests and, above all, on many influences and exchanges with the complex artistic panorama of his time. His direct contact with the avant-garde European movements which explored the plastic possibilities of colour and his friendship with some of their most relevant protagonists determined his best works, which will be displayed in the exhibition.
