Still life painting: an unambitious exercise in imitation? No longer, since avant-garde artists seized upon the genre to bring radical change to art. For the first time, this retrospective presents 400 years in the evolution of the most magnificent Spanish still lifes: from the first bodegónes of the 17th century and the personal interpretations of Velázquez and Goya to the experiments in form of Picasso, Dalí and Miró and the recent work of contemporary Spanish artists.
