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.

"Return to beauty". Masterpieces of Italian art from between the wars

Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall

Del 25/02/2017 al 04/06/2017

From 25 February the Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall plays host to Italian art from between the wars. Following the Great War, and holding radical avant-gardism responsible for the historical, moral and cultural disorder, the trend throughout nearly the whole of Europe was towards a “return to order”, going back to the security and serenity offered by classicism. These artists represent the flag bearers. The exhibition features loans from numerous private collections and international institutions, noteworthy among which are the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Museo del Novecento in Milan, the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the National Gallery in Prague and the Museo Morandi, among others.

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.
