The exhibition

Ansorena Art Gallery presents the exhibition of an exceptional collection of European sculpture with examples from the Quattrocento, the late Gothic of the Netherlands and Central Europe, as well as the Italian Baroque.




There are also magnificent carvings from the Spanish school, covering a long period of time, from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and, of course, our Golden Age, where the carvings of the Valladolid school stand out with works by Gregorio Fernández and an Ecce Homo by Francisco Alonso de los Ríos. From Andalusia, works from the two great schools are exhibited, from Seville two Niños Jesús in lead by Martínez Montañés and an imposing Santa Teresa attributed to Pedro Roldán, and from the Granada school, works by Alonso Cano and Pedro de Mena. For his part, Juan Antonio Villabrille y Ron illustrates what was the Madrid school.




Most of the works that can be seen in the exhibition are wood carvings, but there are also interesting examples of ivories, terracotta, some glazed and even bronzes.




Although the bulk of the exhibition is made up of round sculptures, there are also some reliefs.


 


A unique exhibition to enjoy the history of European and Spanish sculpture.
