Spain’s Realist movement is currently being revisited with some of Courbet’s Original Artwork in Barcelona’s Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya* (MNAC)

‘La Source’ by France’s Gustave Courbet in situ at the Exhibition

Spain’s National Art Museum of Catalonia* (MNAC) is exhibiting over 80 pieces by the French artist Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) until the 10th July 2011, as well as other Spainish artists strongly influenced by his work including Bartolome Murillo & Pere Borrell.

‘Self portrait’ by Spain’s Bartolome Murillo (1617-1682)

This will be the first time some of Courbet’s pieces have ever been seen in Spain.

It reveals Courbet’s sway on the Catalonian artists of the era, in particular you will see the work of Ramon Martí Alsina, a man very much at the forefront of the birth of the Realism movement in Spain.

‘Fugint De La Critica’ by Spain’s Pere Borrell (1835-1910)
