MADRID.- Circulo de Bellas Artes presents an exhibition of works that Patrick Faigenbaum relates to the everyday via series performed in cities like Barcelona, Bremen or Prague.

Curated by Jean-François Chrevrier, the exhibition goes over the last 20 years of work of an author who has become a celebrity thanks to his sumptuous portraits of Italian aristocracy.

Famous for the dark, sumptuous portraits of the Italian aristocracy he made in the mid-nineteen eighties, Patrick Faigenbaum has developed an oeuvre that covers all genres. Street images, urban views and still lifes all form part of his production, although human beings, their unique aura and the inscription they make on time and history constitute the central motif of his work.

PHE09 presents an exhibition that gathers together work from the last twenty years. After an artistic residency at the Villa Medici in Rome, Faigenbaum become well known for his portraits of aristocratic Italian families. After this famous series and over the last fifteen years, he has travelled throughout Europe depicting the cities of Prague, Bremen, Barcelona, Tulle, Saint-Raphael and Beauvais. His photographs go over the history of these large cities creating a fine framework that links the past and the present. His latest project in Santulussurgiu (Sardinia) uses deep chiaroscuro to show scenes that seem to come straight from Italian neorealist films such as Roberto Rossellini’s Stromboli.

Patrick Faigenbaum (Paris, 1954) was trained as a painter and took advantage of various grants in Florence and Rome. In 1973 he made his first photographs featuring the cities of Naples, Prague, Bremen and Barcelona. He is the author of various publications and his work has been shown all over the world in museums such as the Centre Georges Pompidou and the MACBA. Recently, the Musée de Grenoble presented his first large retrospective in France.
