The Myth of Spain. Ignacio Zuloaga 1870 – 1945

Few other artists have shaped the image of Spain abroad around 1900 as much as Ignacio Zuloaga (1870-1945): proud toreros and spirited flamenco dancers; the simple life of the rural population, ascetics and penitents in vast, barren landscapes, and beggars, diminutive people and witches who invoke the legacy of old masters such as Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Goya. In times of massive industrialisation and Spain’s increasing orientation towards European modernism, Zuloaga aimed to preserve the “Spanish soul” with such scenes.

The Bucerius Kunst Forum presents a comprehensive exhibition of the Spanish painter, featuring some 80 works.
