A total of 32 works by 25 painters illustrate the transition between centuries of the Spanish art scene in an exhibition of works owned by Unicaja Banco, which, under the title ‘Pintura entre dos siglos: XIX y XX’ (‘Painting between two centuries: 19th and 20th’), will occupy the Pavilion of the Fundación Bancaria Cajastur, at the 65th edition of the Feria Internacional de Muestras de Asturias (FIDMA, International Trade Fair of Asturias), held in Gijón from 6 to 21 August.

 

The exhibition shows the evolution of artistic movements from the second half of the 19th century to the first decades of the 20th: the leap from the prevailing romanticism to realism and costumbrismo as a source of inspiration, the landscape trends developed by Carlos de Haes and his school, giving way to a late impressionism, with Sorolla as the greatest exponent, and with the entry of the new century, the birth of the avant-garde and the new isms.

 

The exhibition includes works by some of the most significant artists of the Spanish art scene during this period, most of them represented in the permanent collections of the Museo Nacional del Prado and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.

 

Among the featured authors are Joaquín Sorolla, Carlos de Haes, Darío de Regoyos, Federico de Madrazo y Ochoa, Nicanor Piñole, Evaristo Valle, Celso Lagar, Agustín Riancho, Dionisio Fierros and Ricardo Arredondo.

 

From 1890 to 1915

 

Chronologically, the exhibition ranges from the painting ‘Puerta de la Universidad de Salamanca’, by Pablo Gonzalvo Pérez, dated 1874, to the work ‘Tierras leonesas’, by Francisco Casariego, from 1950. The exhibition includes works mainly from the period from 1890 to 1915.

 

The works in the exhibition are permanently located in different emblematic buildings of Unicaja Banco in various locations (Asturias, Salamanca, Santander and Toledo, among others).

 

Among the works in this exhibition, two are on loan for permanent exhibition at the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias (‘Víctimas de fiesta’, by Darío de Regollos, and ‘Bodegón de Lastres’, by Telesforo Fernández Cuevas y García de la Mata).

 

These loans are part of Unicaja Banco’s strategy of collaboration agreements with cultural institutions, which includes, among others, agreements with the Ministry of Culture for the transfer and exhibition of El Greco’s ‘The Crucifixion’ in the painter’s museum in Toledo.

 

The authorities of FIDMA and the Chamber of Commerce will visit the Pavilion this Friday, in the traditional reception prior to the inauguration of this year’s edition of the International Trade Fair of Asturias.
