DESCRIPTION

The Kunstmuseum Basel is considered one of the finest public municipal museums in the world. The two cornerstones of its collection are the works dating from the 15th and 16th centuries, on one side, and artworks from the 19th century to the 21st, on the other, with the ensemble of the latter making it one of the most significant collections of contemporary art in Europe.

Coinciding with the closure of the Kunstmuseum Basel for the remodelling of its spaces, the Museo Reina Sofía will be showing a selection from the Kunstmuseum Basel’s important collection of modern and contemporary art, comprising more than a hundred works (paintings, sculptures, collages, photographs and videos). This selection will range in date from the late 19 th century to the present day and will aim to offer a comprehensive panorama that explains the transition from classic modern to contemporary art, including examples of Expressionism, abstract art, Constructivism, Minimalism, German Post-Expressionism and more.

This exceptional occasion will bring together works by artists of the stature of Edvard Munch, Wassily Kandinsky, Picasso, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Le Corbusier, Dubuffet, Alberto Giacometti, Yves Tanguy, Hans Arp, André Masson, Max Ernst, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian, László Moholy-Nagy, Hans Arp, Donald Judd, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Barnett Newman, Andy Warhol, Francis Picabia, Jean Tinguely and Pierre Huyghe.

El Kunstmuseum Basel está considerado el primer museo público municipal del mundo. Los dos ejes fundamentales de su colección los constituyen obras que datan de los siglos XV y XVI, por un lado, y el arte de los siglos XIX al XXI, por otro, conjunto este último que lo convierte en una de las más importantes colecciones de arte contemporáneo de Europa.

Coincidiendo con el cierre temporal del Kunstmuseum Basel para la renovación de sus instalaciones se mostrará una selección de más de cien obras maestras de su colección (pinturas, esculturas, collages, fotografías y vídeos) en el Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. Este conjunto, que abarca desde finales del siglo XIX hasta la actualidad, tratará de ofrecer un amplio panorama del tránsito del arte moderno al contemporáneo, incluyendo ejemplos de movimientos tan diversos como el expresionismo, el cubismo, el purismo, la abstracción, el constructivismo, el minimalismo, el post-expresionismo alemán, la abstracción estadounidense de postguerra o el Pop art.

Estarán representados, entre otros muchos reconocidos artistas, Edvar Munch, Vassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Le Corbusier, Dubuffet, Alberto Giacometti, Yves Tanguy, Hans Arp, André Masson, Max Ernst, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian, László Moholy-Nagy, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Francis Picabia o Pierre Huyghe.
