Coll and Cortés opens exhibition of Old Masters in conversation with photographs by Paulette Tavormina
The exhibition features 23 still life photographs alongside 9 Old Masters by renowned historical artists.

MADRID.- Coll and Cortés announces an exhibition dedicated to still lifes and consisting of Old Master paintings alongside the photographs of contemporary American artist Paulette Tavormina. Taking place from 12 June to 28 September in Madrid, this follows the success of Seizing Beauty, a similar exhibition held at sister-company Colnaghi’s gallery in London in June 2017.

The exhibition features 23 still life photographs alongside 9 Old Masters by renowned historical artists including Luis Edigio Meléndez (1716-1780), Juan van der Hamen y León (1596-1631), Giacomo Ceruti (1698-1767) and Bartolomeo Cavarozzi (1587-1625). The photographs include two new compositions by Paulette Tavormina created specifically for this show and inspired by Trompe L’oeil paintings, as well as two recent works shown in Europe for the first time. It will also include a selection of works featured in the artist’s monograph (Paulette Tavormina: Seizing Beauty, The Monacelli Press, 2016.

Paulette Tavormina: “It was such a dream to have held an exhibition at Colnaghi in London last year and I’m thrilled to be able to continue the journey with a show at Coll & Cortés in Madrid. It’s an honor to have my photographs featured alongside paintings from the gallery’s esteemed collection of Old Masters and to see them hanging alongside many of the great masters who inspire my work. I have always hoped my photographs would affect someone as deeply as the Old Master paintings have affected me. To have the works in conversation is the realization of my greatest artistic aspiration. I’m particularly excited to be showing two new photographs for the first time having created them for this show. They are from my new ‘Trompe L’oeil’ series, and they hold a special resonance as I’ve always wanted to photograph images such as these having been a collector of curiosities since I was young. It is also exciting to be showing for the first time in Europe two recent works from my ‘Flowers, Fish, Bird and Fantasies’ series.”

Nicolas Cortés, CEO of Coll and Cortés: “We’re delighted to be working with Paulette again after the success of the show at Colnaghi in London last summer. Still lifes are perhaps the most timeless works of art so it’s been a really fascinating process working with such an insightful contemporary artist in selecting works for this exhibition from the last 400 years. We’re looking very forward to welcoming visitors to the gallery to enjoy what promises to be a really special show.”
