Luis Feito
 Obra sobre papel
31 May - 28 July
The exhibition
The greatest characteristic of Luis Feito's entire career is freedom. In his work, always abstract except at the beginning, there is no subjection to form, color or technique. His plastic work has burned stages without solution of continuity and in this exhibition of works on paper we have examples of almost all of them.

Pioneer of Abstraction in the early fifties and member of the group El Paso, this exhibition aims to pay tribute to the artist by bringing together pieces from different moments, from the fifties to the end of his career, a proposal where the public can admire in almost its entirety the important legacy of Luis Feito to the History of Spanish Art.

Since the beginning of his career, Feito has almost always chosen not to title his work. The absence of a title in his paintings highlights the painter's refusal to give any interpretative clue as to the possible meanings of his works.
"I wanted the painting to have a value by itself, not to illustrate anything. The moment the painting exists it already says everything it has to say."

It is a retrospective on paper support, works worked with watercolor, acrylic, oil, casein and Indian ink, where the Master experimented with drawing all the research that he then embodied in his painting on canvas, a sort of laboratory of ideas that he developed throughout his career.

The exhibition is completed with five large-format canvases from different moments of his long career.
