Diego Velázquez, Esopo, c. 1638. Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado

Through seven masterpieces by Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (Seville, 1599 - Madrid, 1660), this new exhibition, organised jointly by ”la Caixa” Foundation and the Prado National Museum, presents this outstanding artist from the Spanish Golden Age in an innovative fashion, proposing a play of comparisons and correlations with some of the Spanish and international painters that Velázquez frequented or whose work he was familiar with. These include such essential figures as Titian, Rubens, Ribera, El Greco, Zurbarán, Murillo, Giordano, Claude Lorrain, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Antonio Moro, Stanzione, Guido Reni and Van Dyck.

The 59 works in the show are group by theme in order to highlight the existence of common stylistic interests among artists from different geographic origins, and to illustrate the influences that Velázquez received over the course of his artistic career.

By hosting this exhibition, produced as part of a long-standing alliance between the Prado Museum and ”la Caixa” Foundation, Barcelona joins in with the programme of activities to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Madrid gallery.

Velázquez and the Golden Age. Place: CaixaForum Barcelona (Av. de Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 6-8). Dates: From 16 November 2018 to 3 March 2019.
