Courbet, Van Gogh, Monet, Leger – at the Museo Thyssen Malaga

While I’m mentioning art exhibitions, I thought I’d also highlight the new temporary exhibition at Museo Thyssen.

The new exhibition  ‘Courbet, Van Gogh, Monet, Léger; from naturalist Landscape to the Avant-gardes’, focuses, to quote their marketing material:

reveals the interesting connections that arose between the principal Spanish painters and the most important artistic movements that simultaneously emerged in Europe.

Through a selection of more than forty works from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, the exhibition offers a survey of landscape painting from the mid-19th century to 1950, relating the most important Spanish landscape painters such as Carlos de Haes, Eliseu Meifrèn and Santiago Rusiñol to the principal trends in international, particularly French art with the aim of seeking out affinities and influences.

It’s a small, but impressive collection, and good to see these paintings in Malaga.

The permanent collection focuses on romantic Spanish landcapes and scenes, which is not to everyone’s taste, but I really like them.
