The Museum of Spanish Abstract Art in Cuenca will once again have its collection of most outstanding works from July 10th after a tour lasting more than two years in which he has visited cities on the national and international scene.

Works such as ‘Abesti Gogorra IV’ by Eduardo Chillida, ‘Latido’ by Eduardo Sempere or ‘Brigitte Bardot’ by Antonio Saura have been exhibited in places such as the Madrid headquarters of the Juan March Foundation, due to the exhibition “The most beautiful little museum in the world”. Also in Barcelona at the Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera and Fundació Suñol; the José Guerrero Centre in Granada; the Meadows Museum in Dallas (United States); and the Ludwig Museum Koblenz in Koblenz (Germany).

Some of the works on display were the most definitive of the generation of abstract painters that dominated the second half of the 20th century, such as Fernando Zóbel, Elena Asins, Sara Grilo, José Guerrero, Eva Lootz, Manuel Millares, Pablo Palazuelo, Antonio Saura, Soledad Sevilla, Antonio Tàpies, Jordi Teixidor, Gustavo Torner and José María Yturralde, among others, or sculptors such as Jorge Oteiza, Eduardo Chillida and Martín Chirino.

The reason for the tour was the partial closure of the Hanging Houses museum in Cuenca due to the air conditioning works in its rooms. The museum informs that it will remain closed on July 9 for the installation of the exhibition and will resume its activity on July 10.

Visitors on tour

The tour of these great works from the Museum of Abstract Art of Cuenca has had a total of 70,000 visitors in all its citiesboth national and international. The director of Museums and Exhibitions of the Juan March Foundation, Manuel Fontán, is pleased to have presented this collection to the world almost 70 years after the museum opened.

He says that the international tour has been a reference for art made in Spain in the United States and has been well received in each of the countries.

Fontán also highlights that his latest exhibition in Madrid has led to the Museum of Abstract Art in Cuenca being given a spotlight at a national and international level. “The significance of the museum has come to the forefront.” He assures that this will lead to an increase in visits to the capital of Cuenca, since “whenever there is news about the museum at a national level, people become interested.”
