CUBISM TO REALISM
This Private Reina Sofia Museum Tour, is a marvellous tour through most outstanding paintings and sculptures of the time lapse between the fabulous Spanish expressionist painters such as Ramón Casas, Ignacio Zuloaga, Anglada Camarasa and young Pablo Picasso.
Get ready to assimilate the secrets hidden in the works of the most important Spanish representatives of Cubism (Picasso, Juan Gris), Surrealism (Dalí, Dominguez, Angeles Santos, Remedios Varo, Joan Miró, etc..) , and all the technical innovations like collage, psychic automatism, frottage, grattage and staining, among others, that propelled the art of painting to a New Era.
Guernika of Pablo Picasso (the masterpiece of XX century paintings) will be the strongest point of this unforgettable private Reina Sofia Tour. You will learn how Picasso’s Guernika captures the nightmare of massive aerial bombardments and understand why controversy persists about the multiple symbols of the painting.
Picasso refused in life to explain it, but thanks this private tour you will have a deep insight in previous works of other artists which influence Picasso in the difficult creative process of Guernika, and the most significant interpretations of this great artwork against all the world’s wars and men’s violence.
Such was the case of Miralles, Saura, Canogar, Palazuelo, Chillida, Cuixart, Feito, among many others, whose work and life the official guides of Madrid Museum Tours will have the pleasure to recount for you in an entertaining way.
