Antonio López's exhibition in La Pedrera closed its doors yesterday with 72,560 visitors and breaking records of visitors at the weekend.
Organized by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, it has brought to Barcelona a great retrospective of the artist who is the representative par excellence of the Spanish realist movement of the second half of the 20th century. Slow, deliberate and meticulous production, his work does not allow for simplifications.
The exhibition, which has been the most visited of those organized by the Foundation in La Pedrera, was the first retrospective held in Barcelona and brought together a careful selection of a hundred works - including painting, sculpture and drawing—from different public and private collections.
It has made it possible to trace the artistic trajectory of Antonio López over seven decades of work, from the first works of his youth, from the fifties, to his most recent production.
Structured in thematic blocks, the exhibition has highlighted how certain motifs on which the artist reflects persist and, at the same time, evolve throughout his career: domestic interiors, landscapes and urban views -mainly of Madrid-, still lifes or the human figure.
The exhibition has been organized by the Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera in collaboration with the Drents Museum (Assen, Netherlands).
