The Realists of Madrid are the subject of a Thyssen-Bornemisza exhibition this season

Editor's note: This post refers to the "Realists of Madrid" exhibition which was open until May 22, 2016
Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents an exhibition on a historic group of realist painters and sculptors who have lived and worked in Madrid: Amalia Avia, Francisco López, Julio López, María Moreno, Esperanza Parada, Isabel Quintanilla and Antonio López. The exhibition is structured in different sections. Each includes works by various artists with the aim of emphasising the points they have in common, both with regard to their choice of subjects and their way of approaching them, connections that are strengthened by the close relations that exist between them -personal, family and friendship- and by shared aspects of their academic training.
