From the organizers:

“Spanish Modern Landscapes” (online and in-person) at Colnaghi London places a spotlight on the work of these artists who were heralded in their day, yet have remained lesser-known outside of their native Spain.

Co-organized with Sala Parés (est. 1877) and Artur Ramon Art (est. 1911), “Spanish Modern Landscapes” brings new recognition to this school of Spanish artists, all of whom had trained at the top art academies of Barcelona and many of whom had traveled and worked in Paris alongside Degas, Picasso, and Dali.

The paintings on view, dating from 1880 through 1950, capture pivotal moments in the artists’ careers, as the influences of Realism, Impressionism, and Symbolism prompted their experimentation with bold use of light, color, and perspective, in some cases dramatically altering their style permanently.
