Ingres Exhibition

December 18, 2015

The work of Ingres undoubtedly constitutes an important forerunner to the late 19th- and early 20th-century artistic revolutions.

The exhibition to be shown at the Museo del Prado in 2015, which has benefited from the special collaboration of the Musée du Louvre, offers a precise chronological presentation of Ingres' work but will also pay particular attention to his complex relationship with portraiture (characterized by his simultaneous rejection and admiration for it), which will be juxtaposed with his ongoing aim of being primarily recognized as a history painter.

The exhibition is being held at the Prado Museum, Calle Ruiz de Alarcón 23. Madrid. 28014 Spain and runs from Nov 24, 2015 - March 27, 2016.
