‘Solitude Seville. Between two horizons’, dedicated to the Valencian artist, will be the exhibition with which she Marlborough gallery will close its Madrid headquarters after announcing last April that it was closing permanently worldwideafter 78 years of history, reports Efe.

As reported this Friday, from May 30 to June 29 this exhibition, which precedes the great exhibition that the Reina Sofía National Museum of Art Centerwill show around thirty new works and a ‘site specific’ installation (created for a specific space), which are based on the “concept of the horizon, the primary sign of line and color.”

‘Between two horizons’ will include works arising from a small painting by the Valencian artist Eusebio Sempere (Alicante, 1923-1985), very present in the artist’s life, whose first interpretations were materialized in a reduced format using graphite and later expanded to their usual formats and investigate a color palette different from the initial one.

The result is a set of paintings characterized by geometric rigor, the capacity for tonal modulation, meticulousness and the atmospheric effect that makes a mystical luminosity emerge in them,” they explain from the gallery.

With this exhibition in Seville (València, 1944), one of the main representatives of geometric abstraction in Spain, the Malborough in Madrid closes a 32-year cycle of gallery history in Spain, which began in 1992 with the first exhibition, whose protagonist was the painter Francis Bacon.

The gallery founded by Frank Lloyd and Harry Fischer in 1946, with offices in New York, London, Madrid and Barcelona, ​​will stop presenting exhibitions and representing artists and estates in the primary art market this month.

Gallery inventory representing artists such as Jackson PollockMark Rothko, or to the Spanish Alfonso Albacete or Blanca Muñoz, will be sold in the coming years.

Likewise, this inventory is estimated at more than 15,000 works and the gallery plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the liquidation of the assets to non-profit cultural institutions that support contemporary artists.
