Prado Museum, Madrid

sintesi del comunicato stampa

The Romantic Painter Genaro Perez Villaamil. This previously unpublished group of works produced between 1835 and 1839 comprises 42 views painted on tin plates and assembled by the artist as a diptych with each side terminating in simple, pointed arches supported on columns, resulting in a unique work within the context of Spanish Romanticism. The views are remarkable examples of Villaamil's use of oil when painting outdoors from life, as he normally only used this medium in his studio. They reveal his ability to depict interiors and exteriors of buildings, some of which are already in ruins and would soon disappear. The views in the Diptych anticipate Villaamil's subsequent focus on the depiction of historic buildings and monuments, which led him to become artistic director of La Espana artistica y monumental (1842-1850), a publishing project for which he supplied drawings and watercolours for reproduction as lithographs. Curator: Javier Baron. (Image: Monumental Views of Spanish Cities, Perez Villaamil, 1833-1839, Museo Nacional del Prado)
