With his trilogy formed by the works entitled i, ON and End and his K series, Eamonn Doyle burst onto the photography scene six years ago and his work has today garnered international acclaim. This exhibition invites us to discover the photographic “prints” of this Irish photographer whose work and life is linked to the music scene and his city, Dublin. The exhibition was open to the public at the Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall in Madrid.
The exhibition staged in our Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall displayed the work of the painter Giovanni Boldini (Ferrara, 1842 – Paris, 1931) for the first time in Spain. Boldini was one of the most important and prolific of the Italian artists residing in Paris in the second half of the 19th century.

After a stay at our Barcelona exhibition halls, the Berenice Abbott. Portraits of Modernity exhibition reached Madrid in order to reveal to us this unique artist’s strange gaze. With the cities of New York and Paris taking a starring role as well as her portraits of artists and intellectuals of the 1920s and 1930s, Berenice Abbott offered us her personal vision of an era.
This exhibition, the first retrospective in Spain of his work, provides an unusually broad range of photographs linked together by their captivating formal beauty and their understated commitment to contemporary social issues. The show, organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has been enjoyed at our Fundación MAPFRE Bárbara de Braganza Exhibition Hall in Madrid until 12 May.
