'Travel and landscape. From Latin America to Mallorca'

0 Votes

During the first decades of the 20th century, Mallorca became a destination for many painters from Latin America. The turning point was the Parisian workshop of Anglada Camarasa and the arrival in Paris of artists such as the Argentineans Tito Cittadini and Gregorio López Naguil, or the Mexican Roberto Montenegro. As of 1914, the majority settled in the Port of Pollença and Deyá, fleeing the First World War.

From the first moment they were attracted by the light and color of Majorca, without forgetting the real reason for the trip, which was to search for national art, a theme from which the six sections of the exhibition Travel and Landscape are structured. From Latin America in Mallorca that is now presented to Can Balaguer.

It brings together nearly a hundred pieces from 23 public and private collections that bring us closer to a time when, through American artists, Mallorca was opened up to modernity.
