Paseo del Prado 8
The exhibition will aim to reveal shared artistic preoccupations and look at the occasional encounters between these two very different creative figures. The use of colour and light as expressive devices, the desire to formulate a type of modern painting based on naturalistic tradition, their notable commercial and social success which prevented them from being considered avant-garde painters, and the development of a more personal style in their late years are among the shared characteristics emphasised here.
