Renoir among women: “From the modern to the classic ideal Collections from the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie”

On the occasion of the exhibition, a catalog has been produced that includes a number of hitherto unpublished essays bringing together different assessments of the artist: the contradictions between the cozy world of Renoir and the more bitter side of modern Paris revealed by the painter; the collaboration with the Catalan sculptor Richard Guino; the admiration felt for Renoir by painters such as Matisse and Picasso or the influence of the Moulin de la Galette in the pictorial work of Ramón Casas and Santiago Rusiñol. The publication includes a number of essays on Renoir and how he viewed women as well as a chronology focused on this topic.

I segni nel tempo

"I segni nel tempo" (Sign of the Times) is the result of a rigorous research project that provides a greater insight into the collection of drawings held in the Uffizi Gallery and sheds light on many previously unknown artists. The project came about thanks to the García Viñolas Grant for cataloging Fundación MAPFRE's drawing collections, which was awarded to the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe (Prints and Drawings Department) of the Uffizi Gallery under the scientific direction of Benito Navarrete Prieto, professor at the University of Alcalá and expert in Spanish drawing and painting from the Golden Age. The publication coincides with the exhibition of the same name organized jointly by the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Fundación MAPFRE and the Uffizi's Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe.

Sorolla and the United States

Joaquín Sorolla is one of the great names in 20th century Spanish painting and one of its essential touchpoints. Along with Velázquez and Goya, Sorolla is probably the most popular and well-loved Spanish artist. This catalog showcases the cosmopolitan Sorolla who conquered the North American art scene. For the first time, the vital bond between Sorolla and the United States, whose major museums and private collectors bought a considerable number of the most outstanding and representative works from his most productive period, is reflected in a single publication.

Picasso in his Studio

Picasso in his Studio

This catalog provides a deeper insight into the importance that Picasso attached to the studio as somewhere to experiment. It takes you on a tour of the studio as the space of the artist's creative output as well as a true reflection of his everyday work. The description of the studio, "its inner landscapes" as Picasso used to call them, became the laboratory in which the painter searched for formulas that would enable him to create new transformations.

Impressionists and Post-Impressionists: The Birth of Modern Art. Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay

Impressionists and Post-Impressionists: The Birth of Modern Art. Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay

On this fascinating journey through the great masterpieces of the Musée d’Orsay, we invite you to explore the Post-Impressionist movement, which opened up a pathway to the avant-garde of the 20th century in the wake of the great Impressionist revolution. We accompany you on this journey that starts with Monet's early series and ends with Vuillard's decorative work in his "Public Gardens".

Impressionism

Impressionism

This catalog reviews the history of Impressionism - the most important modern art movement - through some of the masterpieces belonging to the Musée d'Orsay, by artists such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Pissarro and Cézanne, among others. Impressionism laid the stepping stones to modernity, though the movement did not entail a radical break with traditional art; in fact, quite the opposite. In the 1870s, Impressionism, Academic art, Decorative art and Symbolism all coexisted harmoniously in Paris, and this stylistic wealth is reflected in this catalog to even further highlight the triumph of new art forms.
