The exhibition of the Spanish artist Antonio López (born Tomelloso, 1936) is articulated through the artist’s own gaze on his recent and earlier work, given that López has steered the selection of works and overseen their installation, working with the two curators, his daughter María López and Guillermo Solana, the Museum’s Artistic Director, as well as with the exhibition’s technical curator, Paula Luengo. It is a major exhibition of an almost autobiographical nature. Works from the last twenty years, which have arrived at the Museum directly from the artist’s studio and which represent almost half of the 130 works on display, are displayed alongside others created in the more distant past, as far back as the 1950s. Rather than a chronological presentation, the exhibition moves backwards and forwards within the oeuvre of Antonio López, who, as is clearly evident, remains active and working. This is clearly manifested in the Museum’s galleries, in which paintings, drawings and sculptures coexist in a balanced manner, representing the three media in which the artist has worked over the course of his career.
