Exposiciones / Juan Gris, María Blanchard and the cubisms (1916–1927)

06 October, 2017 - 25 February, 2018
Museo Carmen Thyssen, Málaga
Eugenio Carmona, Lourdes Moreno

This exhibition analyses the persistence of cubism beyond the period in which Picasso and Braque, its creators, shaped the movement (1907–1914). The years between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of the twenties witnessed a new lease of life for this creative experience, which significantly influenced twentieth-century art. During this new period, the movement was redefined and different artists took on a leading role. The first section of the exhibition features works produced between 1916 and 1918 by two artists who are presented as key to understanding this second wave of cubism: Juan Gris, who reached the peak of his synthetic, geometric, flat and pure painting during the aforementioned period and played a crucial part in steering cubism in a new direction; and María Blanchard, then at the height of her creative maturity and close relationship with Gris, albeit with a personal and original style.
