Venice - Exhibition

The Fortunys: A Family Story

Palazzo Fortuny

11 May 201924 Nov 2019

To mark the seventieth anniversary of the death of Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo, and to coincide with the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale, Palazzo Fortuny presents exhibition, A Family Story, highlighting the importance of the family context in his artistic development. It is the first exhibition focuses on both father and son: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838-1874) and his son Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo (1871-1949). The reference to the Biennale is neither accidental nor out of place, given that a few months after Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo’s death in 1950, a room was dedicated to him in the Spanish Pavilion, where he had held exhibitions on several occasions.
