Room 406 Spanish Art of the 1950s and Its International Projection

Room?s details

Between the years 1957 and 1960 Spain joined the international circuit of modern art thanks to an idiosyncratic contribution to Art Informel that appealed to both European and American abstract trends (the tradition of the new) and to the great tradition of Spanish art as exemplified by Velázquez and Goya. The context in which this autochthonous trend appeared was that of the end of autocracy and the diplomatic and economic openness promoted by the Franco regime.
