Bilbao And Painting exhibition is the visual history of a town, nineteenth-century Bilbao, which, in spite of being invaded by the French, besieged by the Carlists, and struck by various cholera epidemics—the first in 1834, the fourth and last in 1893—, consolidates economically as a great city, in which a significant number of great artists, who had previously passed through Paris, will thrive.

Through twenty-seven pictorial scenes, like time-songs or greatest hits, we delve into the history of our city.
These paintings sharpen that dual faculty of memory and knowledge that great painting makes possible.

Curator: Kosme de Barañano
