Figurative Expressionisms

Figurative Expressionisms

This exhibition brings together a set of paintings, sculptures and drawings by artists who delve into figurative painting from an expressionist perspective. The set of selected works share the need to represent the human figure from a free and disturbing perspective that, through an almost primitive expressiveness, aims to reflect the dreams and anxieties of the human being. Regardless of its figurative content, what prevails is deformation, gestures and expressive violence in order to delve into the human condition and draw an image that is both solitary and existential.

This artistic trend is extraordinarily transversal and covers practically the entire second half of the 20th century and in some cases shares close links with surrealism, informalism, the COBRA group and even with the Italian transavant-garde.

In order to reproduce this varied amalgam, works by the following artists have been selected: Afro, Jorge Castillo, Luis Claramunt, Antoni Clavé, Germán Cueto, Gaston Chaissac, Jean Dubuffet, Apel·les Fenosa, Ferran Garcia-Sevilla, Jean Helion, Zoran Music, Ana Peters, Antonio Saura, Josep Maria de Sucre, Robert LLimós, André Masson, Henri Michaux…
