The Reina Sofía Museum hosts María Blanchard


Considered one of the leading figures of the Paris avant-garde, this painter from the northern Spanish region of Cantabria is a member of the group of artists that set about renewing the expressive languages of the early twentieth century. Her output ranges from traditional creations through to others in a wholly Cubist style. Femininity, plasticity and feeling in its purest form.

The exhibition on María Blanchard was held in the Botín Foundation from 23 June to 16 September, before transferring to Madrid (from 17 October to 25 February 2013). According to a spokesperson for this institution, the book [catalogue] is “a major milestone in the Foundation’s history of exhibitions”. The catalogue, printed by Artes Gráficas Palermo, has 279 pages and a softcover binding.
