Ignacio Zuloaga y Zabaleta (Éibar, Spain, 1870 – 1945, Madrid, Spain) was a Spanish painter, born in Eibar (Guipuzcoa), near the monastery of Loyola.The work of Ignacio Zuloaga is the subject of a new interpretation, in this exhibition which highlights the fact that his artistic production during his years in Paris combines a profound sense of tradition with a modern vision linked to symbolism.
Traditionally, art historiography in Spain has considered the work of Ignacio Zuloaga from the perspective of what is known as “Dark Spain”. On the other hand, the figure of the painter abroad was considered fundamentally in the evolution of the artistic discourse which would lead to modernity.
