Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall

Art for all in the heart of Madrid

Housed in a building designed by architect Agustín Ortiz de Villajos for the Duchess of Medina de las Torres, following a series of restructuring and upgrading works the exhibition area now covers an area of around 1000 m2, divided into three rooms which are mainly used for exhibiting the plastic arts from the last third of the 19th century through to just after the Second World War. The exhibition rooms opened in the autumn of 2008, coinciding with a new international perspective in our programming following an in-depth review of the modernization of Spanish art between the last third of the 19th century through to the Spanish Civil War.

Free admission to the “Espacio Miró” permanent exhibition with the purchase of your ticket.
If there is no exhibition showing, the entrance fee will be €3 per person.

Exhibition in Madrid. Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall

From 28/09/2017 to 07/01/2018

The exhibition Ignacio Zuloaga in Belle Époque Paris seeks to provide an impression of the work of this painter from Eibar not often seen in Spain. Without overlooking the hackneyed conventional interpretation that links him to 'Black Spain', the course of the exhibition goes beyond that concept and shows how the paintings of Zuloaga (Eibar, 1870-Madrid, 1945) combine a deep sense of tradition with a completely modern outlook, particularly linked to Paris of the Belle Epoque and to the symbolist circles that the painter moved in during those years.

To be able to talk about Zuloaga's world view we need to place his work against other artists of the day such as Paul Gauguin, Paul Sérusier, Pablo Picasso, Francisco Durrio, Santiago Rusiñol, Maurice Denis, Émile Bernard, Giovanni Boldini, Jacques Émile Blanche and the sculptor Auguste Rodin, among others. The show, with more than 90 works, has relied on more than 40 lenders, between domestic and international private collections as well as the Zuloaga family itself, and institutions such as the Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna di Ca’ Pesaro, Venice; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Musée d’Orsay, Paris; Musée National Picasso, Paris; Musée Rodin, París; Museo de Bellas Artes, Bilbao; National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; The State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg and The State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow.

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall

Entering the artistic universe of Miró means discovering the embodiment of pure color, identifying the logic of symbols and evaluating the difficult harmony between the constant and the ethereal. The Catalan artist, who exerted a powerful influence on key American painters of the mid-20th century, was a creator, magician and genius of contemporary.

Sign up for Miró Tuesdays! Every Tuesday from 9 May there will be specialists available to give you an innovative insight into the exhibition.
Fifteen minutes exclusively devoted to you. From 11:30 to 13:30 and from 16:30 to 18:30 hours. We look forward to welcoming you!
