Bizkaia y la corte en la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII
[El espíritu cortesano de una época]
The museum has published a book in the "Minor" series (20 Euros) in which art historian Aingeru Zabala analyses the relationship between various Basques and the court in a wide-ranging context that encompasses the customs and lifestyle of this period.
Co-organised by the Museo Nacional del Prado, Fundación Bancaria "la Caixa" and the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, Goya and the Enlightenment Court will be on display to the public from tomorrow, having been seen at the CaixaForum, Zaragoza. Curated by Manuela B. Mena and Gudrún Maurer, Chief Curator and Curator in the Department of 18th-century Painting and Goya at the Museo del Prado respectively, this exhibition brings together 96 works, many of which (72, of which 52 are oil paintings and the rest documents and examples of the decorative arts) come from the Museo del Prado. The remaining works on display comprise 9 paintings from the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum's own collection and further loans from the Museo de Arte de Ponce, Puerto Rico, the Museo de Zaragoza, the Fundación Colección Ibercaja, the Sociedad Ecónomica Aragonesa de Amigos del País and a number of private collections.
