Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Spain
9: Finished / Unfinished



9: Finished / Unfinished
SPAIN
MADRID  •  Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza  •  Until 21 September 2014
 
 
For the 9th in its series of exhibitions, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza is presenting an analysis of the concept of the “unfinished” in painting through fourteen works from the Permanent Collection and the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. Structured around the traditional genres of history, landscape and portrait painting, the exhibition features sketchily executed works by both Old Master and modern painters. Works on show range from oil sketches by Rubens, Tiepolo, Géricault and Delacroix to a plein air study by Matisse and compositions by Manet, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Heckel and Kokoschka. Nineteenth-century French art was the scene of a battle that pitted the advocates of the finished and the unfinished in painting against each other.
