The Triumph of Colour in Barcelona

//15/12/09
The Fundación Mapfre is celebrating the opening of its new exhibition space in Barcelona with 72 works of art on loan from the Musée d’Orsay and the Orangerie in Paris.

The paintings cover an artistic journey from Impressionism to the Avant-garde. Featured artists include Van Gogh, Matisse, Seurat, Gauguin, Cézanne, Monet, Derain and Renoir. The exhibition is rounded off by Picasso’s Nude Against a Red Background. These masterpieces have only been exhibited outside the Musée d’Orsay and the Orangerie on very few occasions.

The Triumph of Colour: Van Gogh to Matisse will be open at the Casa Garriga i Nogués Exhibition Hall until 10 January 2016. Visitors can find more information about the exhibition here
