COLD WAR ART
This private Reina Sofia Museum Tour by an official guide of Madrid Museum Tours focuses on the artistic creations that emerged during the Cold War. The division of the world into two antagonistic blocs, the Western and the Eastern, caused a series of crises that artists of that epoch reflected in convulsive, contradictory, passionate and provocative works of outmost artistic and sociological interest.
Photographs, paintings, sculptures and films of the Cold War period introduced on this Reina Sofia Museum private Tour, will immerse us in a whirlwind of works and artists that shall give our clients a perfect knowledge of one of the most difficult but exciting periods of Modern History and its Artistic Expressions.
Last but not least, you will meet superb Spanish abstract painters who achieved considerable international recognition despite the obstacles they suffered at the hands of the censors of Franco’s dictatorship. 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.
