Unpublished and perfect still life in the MNAC

Until February 28th, you can visit “Incólume. Bodegones del Siglo de Oro” (Intact. Still lifes from the Golden Age ), a collection of still lifes depicting the forgotten corners of the best art of the seventeenth century

 

Representations of food, flowers and other objects: still lifes are suggestive captures of specific times and spaces where chromaticism and technical perfection are translated into symbolic messages and allegories concerning the historical and moral context in which they were created.

In Incólume. Bodegones del Siglo de Oro, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya collects nineteen unknown still life of Spanish artists from the Golden Age, a time of flourishing for art and literature. Among them are works in perfect state by Juan van der Hamen, Pedro de Camprobin and Juan de Arellano. This is a selection of works that will join the museum's permanent collection and will be exhibited at the new presentations of Renaissance and Baroque art, scheduled for next year.

This transfer of five years allows researchers to study the works, while the general public enjoys getting to know them.
