Zurbarán. A New Perspective

From 09 June to 13 September 2015



The exhibition Zurbarán. A New Perspective, to be held at the Museum in the summer of 2015, will offer visitors a carefully chosen survey of the artist’s output, from his earliest commissions to key works from his mature period.

The result will be a new vision of this Spanish Golden Age painter from Extremadura through the presence of previously unexhibited canvases or ones recently rediscovered over the past few years and not previously seen in Spain.

A contemporary of Velázquez, Zurbarán’s realistic but mystical vision and his unique manner of approaching his subject matter has made him a key artist whose importance was recognised by modern art trends of the 20th century.

The exhibition will juxtapose his work with that of his most talented pupils, the latter shown together in one gallery, and with that of his son Juan de Zurbarán, represented by his sophisticated still lifes.

Mythological compositions and portraits complete the extensive representation of religious works in the seven galleries of the exhibition, which is jointly curated by Odile Delenda, art historian and specialist in Zurbarán, and Mar Borobia, Head of Old Master Painting at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
