This exhibition, produced in association with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, shows the work of a group of artists living in the Spanish capital in the Seventies. In the light of international trends at the time, they reinvigorated the art of figurative painting capturing as they did so the cultural and social atmosphere as Francoism came to an end and modern democracy was born in Spain.
The featured artists are: Carlos Alcolea, Chema Cobo, Carlos Franco, Luis Gordillo, Sigfrido Martín Begué, Herminio Molero, Guillermo Pérez Villalta, Luis Pérez Mínguez, Rafael Pérez Mínguez, Manolo Quejido and Javier Utray.
