The exhibition will include a series of some 200 works grouped in five main areas and comprising a very careful selection of some of the most emblematic works by this Barcelona painter.
The show´s narrative will be enriched by a very select group of works from an extremely notable repertoire of artists who served as his inspiration or exerted a certain influence in him. The inclusion of visual reference works by these painters, who influenced the inflections of his poetics, with figures such as Carolus-Duran, Toulouse-Lautrec, Manet, Sargent, Degas, Bastien-Lepage, Whistler, Rusiñol or Sorolla, is reflected by the similar role of master that Casas played for such important artists as Torres-Garcia, Picasso or Julio Romero de Torres, who will also be represented by their work in the exhibition.
The exhibition will travel to CaixaForum Madrid and Palma de Mallorca throughout 2017.
