Eine bedeutende Ausstellung Britischer Kunst und Zeichnungen aus dem 15. – 20.ten Jahrhundert wird in der Fundación March in Madrid gezeigt.
Für die Ausstellung ‘Treasure Island. British Art from Holbein to Hockney’ wurden 180 Meisterwerke von 100 Künstlern aus europäischen Sammlungen entliehen, die meisten davon aus Britischen.
Der Titel der Ausstellung, angelehnt an den Roman ‘Die Schatzinsel’ des Schriftstellers Robert Stevenson, unterstellt dass die Britische Kunst noch viele zu entdeckende Schätze birgt.
Die Porträts, Landschaften und Naturbeobachtungen, aufgeteilt in sieben Bereiche, sollen einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Gruppen der Sammlung geben.
Ausstellungsbeginn: 5. Oktober 2012, -ende: 20. Januar 2013
Exposición en Madrid: LA ISLA DEL TESORO – Arte británico de Holbein a Hockney
“Opening on 5 October, this exhibition, to be shown at the Fundación Juan March in Madrid until 20 January 2013, offers a survey of the rich and dynamic world of British art from the 15th to the 20th centuries.
(Fundación March @ facebook & twitter).
The exhibition’s title, which echoes that of the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, suggests that, like many treasures, British painting and sculpture is one that remains to be discovered. The approach with Treasure Island: British Art from Holbein to Hockney has been the idea of the places of art. The idea that lies behind this project is to try to learn what occurred in the arts in Great Britain through five centuries of British art when we enquire into where it was and is instead of what it was and is.
A chronicle of British art presents it from the outset as strikingly universal: a considerable number of foreign artists made Great Britain their home and their place of work.
The exhibition features 180 works –paintings, sculptures, works on paper, books, magazines and photographs– created by more than 100 artists and loaned from a range of European institutions, most of them in Britain.
This comprehensive selection, spanning more than five centuries, has been structured into seven sections, ranging from impressive examples of the religious sculpture that was damaged by the Protestant iconoclasts during the Reformation to the Pop Art of Blake and Hamilton, Richard Long’s conceptualism and Tony Cragg’s emblematic installation Britain seen from the North (1981).
The different sections of the exhibition are entitled
•Destruction and Reformation (1520-1620);
•Revolution and the Baroque (1620-1720);
•Society and Satire (1720-1800);
•Landscapes of the Mind (1760-1850);
•Realism and Reaction (1850-1900);
•Modernity and Tradition (1900-1940);
•A Happy World (1945-1980).
Treasure Island. British Art from Holbein to Hockney is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published in two editions, in Spanish and English. It contains a complete introduction to British art, history and visual culture over five centuries, written in a lively but rigorous and exhaustive style.
The essays, which are written by the exhibition’s curator Richard Humphreys and by Tim Blanning and Kevin Jackson, focus on historical and literary as well as artistic facets of a rich visual history that remains surprisingly unknown in detail. The catalogue also contains an anthology of texts by artists, essayists, historians and literary figures, some previously unpublished in Spanish." (Courtesy march.es)
