Fortuny, Mariano - Museo Nacional del Prado

Mariano Fortuny 
The Prado will present (21.11.2017 - 18.03.2018) a major retrospective on 

>> Mariano Fortuny 1838 Reus † 1874 Rom

one of the most consistently appreciated and internationally celebrated 19th-century Spanish artists. This will be an exceptional and unrepeatable exhibition as in addition to examples of his paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints it will include items from Fortuny’s exquisite collection of antiquities and works of art which he housed in his studio: objects that reveal the artist’s interest in detailed observation and explain the refined depiction of textures, colour and light in his own works.
