This exhibition establishes a dialogue between paintings by the Argentinean artist César Paternosto and works from the museum’s permanent collection.
Curated by César Paternosto himself, it analyses the shift in the pictorial paradigm which, at the start of the 20th century, led artists to rediscover painting as object, in contrast to the Renaissance illusionism that had transformed the canvas into a window through which to see visible reality.

The exhibition will thus include canvases by Paternosto displayed alongside works by Picasso, Gris, Mondrian and Torres-García with the aim of encouraging visitors to reflect on this artistic transformation, which began more than a century ago.

Towards Painting as Object features eight works by Paternosto loaned from public and private collections, five from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection and one from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.

On 24 January the museum’s Artistic Director, Guillermo Solana, and César Paternosto will take part in a discussion in the Auditorium, with free entry until all places are filled.
