The art of Ignacio Zuloaga (Eibar 1870–1945 Madrid) is often associated with Romantic ideas of Spain’s Black Legend. This exhibition aims to show the painter in a different light, focusing on his connections with the innovations of Belle Époque Paris. The exhibition illuminates the Symbolist milieu in which the Spanish painter moved during his several stays in France. Curated by Leyre Bozal Chamorro and Pablo Jiménez Burillo, it features more than 90 works by such artists as Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Santiago Rusiñol, Émile Bernard and Auguste Rodin.
