Mythos Spanien. Ignacio Zuloaga (1870–1945)

Exhibition Museum Indoor
In the organizer's words:

With around 90 works, the Kunsthalle München is showing the first comprehensive exhibition on the Spanish painter Ignacio Zuloaga in Germany. Hardly any other artist shaped the image of Spain abroad around 1900 as much as he did: toreros and spirited flamenco dancers; beggars, dwarfs, and witches invoking the artistic legacy of Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Goya; ascetics and penitents in vast landscapes withered under a glaring sun; the simple life of the rural population. In times of increasing industrialization and Spain's incipient orientation towards European modernism, Zuloaga wanted to preserve the "Spanish soul" with such scenes, with which he celebrated international success.
