Different visions of the world from the beginning of the 20th century. Photography fills our exhibition halls

The bold gaze of the photographer Berenice Abbott and Richard Learoyd's camera obscura technique can be enjoyed in both our Madrid and Barcelona photography exhibition halls. Our photography offering is completed this year by the Anthony Hernandez exhibition where we discover the socially-engaged world of this contemporary North American photographer. Through painting we travel through various moments from the first half of the 20th century. The exhibition From Chagall to Malevich: art in revolution evokes the sense of modernity which was sweeping through Russia with the October Revolution and the exhibition of the works of Giovanni Boldini offers a social commentary on the Paris of the beginning of the 20th century.
