Matisse “returns” to the Alhambra 100 years after his visit to the Nasrid monument. Matisse and the Alhambra (1910-2010) is the name of the commemorative exhibition by Patronato de la Alhambra y Generalife and the Spanish State Agency for Cultural Commemorations (SECC), in collaboration with the “laCaixa” Foundation. The exhibition commemorates the centenary of the French painter’s visit to the Nasrid monument and recreates his fascination he felt for the Oriental world after his journey to Spain, Andalusia and the Alhambra, where he was on 9, 10 and 11 December 1910.
The exhibition is curated by María del Mar Villafranca, Director of the Patronato de la Alhambra y Generalife, and Francisco Jarauta, Full Professor of Philosophy, University of Murcia. The exhibition opens on 15 October in rooms 8, 9 and 10 of the Museum of Fine Arts in Granada (in the upper floor of the Palace of Charles V), within the Monumental Complex of the Alhambra, where it will be open until 28 February 2011.
