• Fortuny y Madrazo: An Artistic Legacy

    NOVEMBER 30, 2012 – MARCH 30, 2013


         In November, 2012, Spanish Institute presented Fortuny y Madrazo: An Artistic Legacy, a seminal exhibition analyzing the work of celebrated Spanish artist and designer Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo (1871–1949) in the context of the family of artists from which he  descended. Conceived by and curated with Oscar de la Renta, chairman of the Institute’s board of directors, this was the first exhibition to examine the impact of both the matrilineal and paternal artistic legacies on Fortuny’s groundbreaking work in numerous fields, from textile and clothing design to visual arts, and elaborating on the origins and influences that shaped his extraordinary career.


    Exhibition ran from November 30, 2012−March 30, 2013
