Visit to the exhibition "Pintores Románticos ingleses en la España del siglo XIX"

The exhibition, with forty works including oil paintings and aquarels, shows the Spain through the romantic view of English painters in our country seeking the authentic and genuine expression of the spirit of a nation.

During the nineteenth century, Spain and England maintained a special relationship to the cultural level. British support for the Spanish during the invasion of Napoleon made us look at the English with sympathy. And the admiration was mutual: British painters and writers saw Spain as a place that offered the quintessential romantic idealism. Thus, they traveled through our country in search of a natural and authentic scenery, far away from the panaroma that was transforming England, due to changes that the Industrial Revolution and the frenetic economic growth were causing in their cities. It is known that the poet Wordsworth book devoted to our country, Poemas a España, and even more representative is Lord Byron's relationship with our land, because during the War of Independence, he went to the front to meet with General Brown; and here he also composed some of his poems, as La chica de Cádiz.

 

Exaltation of the sentiment

If Spain was a country of reference for writers, it also was for the painters of that period. Indeed, the English romantic painters exhibition in Spain of the nineteenth century is witness to this. They met a selection of over forty paintings and aquarels by artists such as Edwin Long, Robert Kemma or John Bagnold Burgess, who faithfully represent the essence of Romanticism which prevailed in nineteenth-century Europe. Their paintings reflect the most romantic exaltation of the sentiment in response to a time when only reason dominates. This is reflected in impetuous strokes, bright colors and, above all and foremost, the ubiquitous presence of a light that can only be found in Spain.
