This retrospective exhibition of Nicolás de Lekuona (1913-1937) - the first of this magnitude to be presented in Barcelona in a private space - offers a tour of his brief but extraordinary artistic career. More than sixty works have been selected form the artist’s family collection. In addition to oil paintings, drawings and collages, the visitor will also have the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable selection of his photographs and rare photomontages. Despite his premature death at the age of 24 during the Spanish Civil War, the innovative and experimental spirit of his works have made Lekuona become a prominent member of the Spanish avant-garde. During his short life he developed a legacy of great artistic quality and diversity much of which can now be appreciated in this anthology until September 25th.
