Exposition : « Francisco de Herrera ‘the Younger’. The Absolute Baroque », Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado, 25 avril-30 juillet 2023

Francisco de Herrera “the Younger” is one of the most unique and innovative artists of the Spanish Baroque. Nonetheless, and despite his importance during his lifetime, he remains an under-appreciated and in many respects unknown painter.

This exhibition, featuring works by the artist which have almost all been restored by the Museo del Prado in an unprecedented project, aims to draw attention to Herrera’s fundamental period in Italy, a time when he acquired his skills in drawing and as a painter of still lifes of fish. His artistic aims and ambitions during that time are also evident in the relations he established with important patrons associated with the Accademia di San Luca and the Accademia dei Virtuosi al Pantheon. The exhibition also illustrates the influence of his years of training in printmaking techniques in Seville with his father, Francisco de Herrera the Elder, and his relationship with Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, comparing their different ways of understanding painting and highlighting the envy Herrera aroused among his contemporaries as an individual who stood out for his talents and unique and forceful personality.
