Exhibition Pits Picasso Against Toulouse Lautrec



(22 Oct 2017) LEADIN:
A unique exhibition in Spain is comparing the works of two great masters of modern art – Pablo Picasso and Toulouse Lautrec.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid presents Picasso/Lautrec to mark its 25th anniversary and takes visitors on a journey thorough the lives and influences of both artists.
STORYLINE:
Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec together for the first time in Spain.
Even thought they never met in life, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid is bringing together more than a hundred paintings from some sixty public and private collections from all over the world.
Those 59 works of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and 47 of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) are grouped around the themes that interested both artists: caricature portraits; nightlife in cafés, cabarets and theatres; the harsh reality of marginal individuals; the spectacle of the circus; and the erotic universe of brothels.
The exhibition has been put together by Chief Curator of Modern Painting at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Paloma Alarcó.
“Lautrec was not a painter who used to go outdoors for painting, but he took refuge at night in Montmartre. He begins to paint scenes of the underworld, scenes of popular entertainment, courtship scene in the bars and the entertainment places of Paris that were in full swing at the end of the 19th century and all that will interest Picasso as soon as he arrives to Paris,” explains Alarcó.
From 1900 to 1904, Picasso lived in Paris where he discovered post-impressionists such as Lautrec.
During those first years in France, Picasso’s first paintings show those underworld images clearly influenced by Lautrec’s posters.
In fact, the Professor of the department of Art History at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Francisco Calvo Serraller says that Toulouse-Lautrec was the first pop-artist.
Toulouse-Lautrec was a tireless explorer of the underworld of the frenetic nights of Montmartre. Through his posters and his paintings he shows the dancing and makeup of women under the gas lamps in the new entertainment venues.
The themes of eroticism and prostitution captivated Lautrec and Picasso. Both approached the nude from a modern vision.
“The masculine and feminine nude forms part of the backbone of classical art, but that was an idealized nude. On the contrary, artists like Lautrec and Picasso, also Degas, look for the unseen – aided by the mechanical eye of photography that allows to take unusual images. The unseen, because it was impudent or because it was unusual. That is what Degas described as to look through the eye of a lock. Kind of a voyeurism,” explains Serraller.
Thanks to caricature, parody and exaggeration, both are recognised as revolutionising the artistic language and opening the doors to the modern portrait.
Another theme is the circus. Horse riders, clowns or acrobats all feature in the drawings of Lautrec and in Picasso’s paintings which are side by side in the exhibition.
The exhibition also examines the fascinating relationship between the two artists from new viewpoints. It does not merely explore the cliché of the young Picasso as an admirer of Lautrec, but traces the latter’s lingering influence throughout the Spanish artist’s lengthy career, including his final period.
In fact, Picasso kept a photograph of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec in his studio while he was painting “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” in Cannes.
Although their artistic link has been repeatedly established by literature and contemporary critics, this is the first time their works have been displayed alongside each other in an exhibition.
Angela Nuñez, Art Journalist at RNE (National Radio of Spain), says the exhibition provides a different context.

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. Exposición "Bulgari y Roma".

El Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza es una pinacoteca de maestros antiguos y modernos ubicada en Madrid (España). Su existencia se debe al acuerdo de arrendamiento (1988) y a la posterior adquisición, por parte del Gobierno español (1993), del núcleo más valioso de la colección privada reunida a lo largo de siete décadas por la familia Thyssen-Bornemisza. Este fondo artístico aportó numerosos ejemplos de pintores extranjeros ausentes de los museos españoles, desde el gótico de los siglos XIV y XV (Duccio, Jan van Eyck) hasta el pop art y la pintura figurativa de los años 1980 (Lucian Freud, Richard Estes), por lo que vino a complementar el repertorio expuesto en los dos principales centros estatales, el Museo del Prado y el Reina Sofía. La apertura del Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza en 1992 dio lugar, al unirse a estos dos museos, al llamado Triángulo del Arte del paseo del Prado, área museística de Madrid que concentra el acervo pictórico más importante de España.

La institución, gestionada por una fundación bajo control público, tiene su sede en un edificio histórico, el Palacio de Villahermosa, donde exhibe el grueso de su colección: más de 700 obras (otras sesenta se exponen en depósito en el MNAC de Barcelona). Gracias a un anexo sumado en 2004 amplió su exhibición con unas 240 piezas más, prestadas por Carmen Cervera, viuda del barón Thyssen. Paralelamente, el museo alberga múltiples exposiciones temporales.

Según The Art Newspaper, basándose en datos facilitados por los propios museos, en 2013 el Thyssen fue el quinto museo más visitado en España, con 944.827 visitantes, situándose en el puesto número 61 de su ranking de los 100 museos de arte más visitados del mundo. En 2016 recibió algo más de 1.064.000 visitas.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is a gallery of old and modern masters located in Madrid (Spain). Its existence is due to the lease agreement (1988) and to the subsequent acquisition, by the Spanish Government (1993), of the most valuable nucleus of the private collection gathered over seven decades by the Thyssen-Bornemisza family. This artistic background contributed numerous examples of foreign painters absent from Spanish museums, from the Gothic of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries (Duccio, Jan van Eyck) to pop art and figurative painting of the 1980s (Lucian Freud, Richard Estes) , So it came to complement the repertoire displayed in the two main state centers, the Museo del Prado and Reina Sofía. The opening of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in 1992 gave rise, by joining these two museums, to the so-called Art Triangle of Paseo del Prado, a museum area in Madrid that concentrates the most important pictorial collection in Spain.

The institution, run by a foundation under public control, is housed in a historic building, Villahermosa Palace, where it exhibits the bulk of its collection: more than 700 works (another sixty are on deposit at the MNAC in Barcelona). Thanks to an annex added in 2004 expanded its exhibition with some 240 pieces, provided by Carmen Cervera, widow of Baron Thyssen. In parallel, the museum hosts multiple temporary exhibitions.

According to The Art Newspaper, based on data provided by the museums themselves, in 2013 Thyssen was the fifth most visited museum in Spain, with 944,827 visitors, ranking 61st in its ranking of the 100 most visited art museums in the world . In 2016 received just over 1,064,000 visits.
