Night and its Gas Light - Phantoms in Spanish Painting
Miguel Viladrich, My Funerals, ca. 1909.
MADRID, SPAIN.- Fundación Cultural Mapfre Vida presents Night and its Gas Light - Phantoms in Spanish Painting: 1880-1930, on view through January 15, 2006. The exhibition was curated by Pablo Jiménez Burillo and Lily Litvak. The exhibition features different visions of night in Spanish painting in the last part of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The concept of night changes radically in the last part of the 19th century. The magnitude of this transformation can be summarized in three words: “Paris la nuit.” Night is not only the scenery for darkness and fear. The new outside urban lighting allows people to live the night fully, see it from new points of view, richer and more fascinating. Night is a central issue of modernity and becomes one of its most emblematic images in painting as well as in literature. All modern artists are fascinated by the night.
