(VIDEO) HM Queen Letizia of Spain Inaugurates an Exhibition in Madrid.

spainOn Monday, November 23, 2015, Her Majesty Queen Letizia of Spain inaugurated the exhibition, Ingres, at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid.

The exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, showcases works by the late French artist, Mr. Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.

Ingres pays particular attention to the late artist’s complex relationship with portraiture, characterized by his simultaneous rejection and admiration for it, which is juxtaposed with his ongoing aim of being primarily recognized as a history painter.

The work of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres undoubtedly constitutes an important forerunner of the late 19th- and early 20th-century artistic revolutions. The heir to Raphael and Poussin, Mr. Ingres’ work anticipates both Picasso and anatomical distortion in art, inspiring the revitalization of the 19th-century European art schools, particularly in Spain.

Ingres will be open to the public on November 24-March 27, 2016 at the Museo Nacional del Prado.
