Picasso with ARTEH in Madrid

August 07, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
To be in the same city, only a stroll away through the royal gardens from 100 master pieces of one of the worlds most notorious painting geniuses, is surely a once in a life time opportunity.

Until September Madrid will be gathering one hundred Picasso paintings, distributed between the Prado Museum and the renewed Reina Sofia- Queen Sofia - Museum.

And what better option is there to stay in this atmosphere, than an ARTEH® hotel that fully comprehends the beauty of art.

Leave your problems and luggage up to us and grasp the pleasure and luxury of ARTEH® in the Spanish capital while appreciating a unique world exhibition.

The Tradition and Avant-Garde – exhibition marks Pablo Picasso’s 125th anniversary as well as the return, after 25 years, of the famous Guernica to Madrid. This famous work of art was completed in 1937, during the Spanish civil war. However, Picasso had it sent to MOMA in New York under the condition that it should return to Spain once the population lived under a democracy.

At the Reina Sofia Museum, while traveling through the life and work of one of the greatest geniuses of the world, one may appreciate all Guernica’s sketches and prep work.

Within over 100 fascinating paintings and sculptures from all over the world, together for the first time ever, are on exhibition to be appreciated:

La Vida (1903) from the Cleveland Museum of Art, El niño con el caballo (1906) from the Museum of Modern Art New York, Panes y frutero con frutas sobre una mesa (1908-1909) and El aficionado (1912) from the Kunst museum of Basilea, Autorretrato con paleta (1906) and Tres músicos (1921) from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, La flauta de Pan (1923) from the Picasso Museum in Paris, La alborada (1942) from the Centre Georges Pompidou in París or Las Meninas (1957) from the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

At the Reina Sofia Museum, the exhibition is centered on the Guernica and its legacy, bringing together paintings where Picasso illustrates his indignations towards worldwide conflicts, such as the El Osario (1945) from the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the Korean Massacre (1951) from the Picasso Museum in Paris.

Also to appreciate at this museum are other illustrations that clearly condemn violence such as the Maximiliano Execution (1868-1869) of Edouard Manet, from the Städtische Kunsthalle in Mannheim, the Los fusilamientos del 3 de Mayo (1814) of Franciso de Goya, from the Prado Museum.

Once you feel you need a rest, more beauty and comfort awaits you in one of our hotels.

They may not be a Picasso creation, but are sure to inspire and make your stay in Madrid a true work of art.

De las Letras H&R

Enter the world of literature and feel inspired.

The Hotel De las Letras H&R emerged from a renovation project, by the architect Virginia Figueras, of a 1917 building situated on the emblematic Gran Via of the Spanish Capital and acknowledged as Madrid Historical Heritage.

Completely refurbished under the inspiration of the world of art, culture and literature, worlds to which the hotel pays homage. Reflecting all this are the library and reading room for guests, as well as the interior design of the rooms, all of which face the avenues and combine quotations from famous authors with attractive state of the art design.
