The Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid, Spain) is showcasing the exhibition Maria Blanchard (Santander 1881, Paris 1932) until next 25 February.
The show is organized in three periods corresponding her first works (1908-1913), her Cubist period (1913-1919) and her lasts more figurative paintings (from 1920-1932).
The artwork of Maria Blanchard clearly shows the influences of her teachers and artist friends such as Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa, Kees Van Hogen, Juan Gris and Diego Rivera and her interest in the Cubist movement.
Although her oeuvre is frequently less well known than that of her peers, Maria Blanchard was one of the most important artists of the avant-gardes of the 20th century, and this exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to see the art of a great Spanish painter.
