ANTONIO LOPEZ GARCIA, one of Spain’s most revered artists.

It is impossible to describe Antonio López García simply as a painter in the “realist” school. His masterful paintings of the prosaic, familiar places of his world and of the family and friends comprising it reveal an unusual sensitivity to his subject. Through uncompromising study of his subjects, he has imbued the commonplace with a haunting and extraordinary character, seen in his exceptional depiction of light—at once brilliant and subdued, ethereal and fleeting, and palpable. His unrelenting examination and depiction of his subject means that he sometimes spends years to finish a single canvas. This penetrating approach, as well as his exceptional skill, has singled out López García as one of Spain’s most revered artists.

This exhibition of approximately sixty paintings, drawings, and sculpture is presented as a complement to the exhibition “El Greco to Velázquez: Art during the Reign of Philip III.” López García is in the lineage of artists to be examined in this historical exhibition, artists who introduced naturalism into Spanish art, from an attention to detail and the depiction of space in court portraiture, to the flourishing of still life, to the humanizing of saints.

Chuck Close – Pinturas

February 6, 2007 — May 7, 2007

CLOSE_portrait_sm.jpgChuck Close (b. 1940, Monroe, WA) received his B.A. from the University of Washington, Seattle in 1962 before studying at Yale University School of Art and Architecture (B.F.A., 1963; M.F.A. 1964). Following graduation, Close was awarded a Fulbright grant and studied at the Akademie der Bildenen Kunste, Vienna; he began working from photographs at this time. In 1967, Close moved to New York City where, one year later, he began black and white portrait painting. Soon thereafter, his work was included in the “1969 Annual Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting” at the Whitney Museum of American Art—marking his first inclusion in a museum exhibition—and in 1970, Close received his first solo show. Nearly ten years later, during the late Seventies and early Eighties, Close began oil paintings and photography-based portrait series.

Close’s drawings, paintings, photographs and prints have been the subject of more than one hundred exhibitions in over 20 countries, including many organized by museums. Most recently, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid organized “Chuck Close Paintings: 1968 / 2006”, the first retrospective of works by Chuck Close in Spain.

“Legado: España y los Estados Unidos en la era de la Independencia, 1763–1848” destaca la relación entre España y los Estados Unidos durante un período de ochenta y cinco años marcado por acontecimientos que transformaron de manera radical la realidad de Europa y del Continente Americano. El Tratado de París de 1763 puso fin a la Guerra entre Francia y los pueblos indígenas en América del Norte y cambió de manera dramática el panorama político de la región.
Los términos del tratado dejaron a dos grandes potencias europeas con vastas posesiones coloniales en el continente: Gran Bretaña al este del río Mississippi y España al oeste. Esta bifurcación geográfica creó las condiciones propicias para futuros conflictos, negociaciones, desplazamientos de fronteras, intrigas, pactos, alianzas y batallas, que tuvieron lugar dentro y fuera del continente, entre esos dos países, la joven república norteamericana, los franceses y los pueblos indígenas.
Los retratos, mapas, documentos y tratados que se encuentran en esta exposición ilustran momentos significativos de intersección política y económica entre España y los Estados Unidos. En “Legado” se subrayan las importantes contribuciones de España a la causa americana durante la guerra de la Independencia; se detallan las subsiguientes relaciones diplomáticas con énfasis en los derechos territoriales y las fronteras; y se realza la presencia y la influencia de la cultura hispánica en Florida, Luisiana, California y el suroeste en los primeros años formativos de la república norteamericana.
Organizado por el National Portrait Gallery, Sociedad Estatal para la Acción Cultural Exterior de España (SEACEX), el Centro Latino del Smithsonian, y la Fundación Consejo España-Estados Unidos. Esta exposicion se hizo posible por una donacion generosa de The Walt Disney Company. Apoyo adicional viene de BBVA, Grupo Barceló, Iberdrola, e Iberia. El Ministro de Asuntos Extranjeros y Cooperacion de España, el Ministro de Cultura de España, y la Embajada de España en los Estados Unidos tambien contribuyeron a la realizacion de este proyecto

  • Mis Sentimentos en La Cultura de España!

Spanish Culture is very original. Everything from Flamenco dance to bullfighting is part of the everyday Spanish lifestsyle. Spanish history is very vast. From the Spanish Inquisition to the Spanish Armada, events throughout history have influenced the Spain we see today. Spain also has a very rich artistic backround. Many world famous painters came from Spain including: Pablo Picasso, Diego Valázquez, and Salvador Dalí. Their works have become some of the highest priced pieces of art in the world.
