I'm blogging about it now because I just found the photos and realised I had not put up a post about it.
The curator of this show has done a wonderful job. It is interesting to see the different painting styles as time progressed. No photos were allowed, of course, so I cannot show you my 2 favourites.
There was a Princess (Infanta) going off to be married in a foreign land. The painting created to commemorate this event is magnificent. It is so good you can almost feel the fabric in the dress and see the raised embroidery in gold thread.
Just outside the exhibition, The Art Gallery has set up a tapas bar, where patrons can taste some of the food and wine of Spain. Very clever and tasty. Also set up are ipads with drawing applications and fruit and vegetables ready for patrons to try their hands at still life drawing. There are Spanish playing cards and rules for several games to try.
|This is the best Orange/Almond Cake I've ever tasted.|
All in all, it was a great day out.
