Room 402 The Primordial and the Primitive: CoBrA Group

Room?s details

In the space devoted to the second part of its Collection, Is the War Over? Art in a Divided World, the Museo Reina Sofía welcomes a selection of works by the CoBrA Group (1948-1951), loaned from the Collection Fondation Gandur pour l’Art, Geneva (Switzerland). This ensemble of artworks manifests one of European art’s points of departure from the troubled situation after the war through the collective commitment to an expressionist style that drew inspiration from certain elements of Surrealism, drawings by children and the mentally ill and the regeneration of primitivism.
