 CaixaForum revisits the Belle Èpoque, a period flanked by two wars, spanning from the final years of the 19th century to the first brushstrokes of the 20th and notable for the changes to artistic conventions. The exhibition covers portraits from three generations of painters.

The exhibition displays the more famous images of Impressionism, post-Impressionism and the first avant-gardes movements of the 20th century, but also reveals the lesser-known side of the period’s arts scene, presenting close to a hundred works reflecting on the development of political and social styles and aspects of the period captured in the paintings.

 

Date: until 9th of October, 2011          Place: CaixaForum, Av. Francesc Ferrer Guàrdia, 6          Tickets: free entrance                             

Opening hours: Every day from 10:00 to 20:00h.
