One of Spain’s best-known contemporary artists, Juan Genovés is celebrated for his provocative expressionist paintings, which explore issues of social and political realism.

Since the 1980s, his paintings have often focused on an urban landscape, reducing it to a compelling chromatic range of grays, blues and ochres that make up “spaces of loneliness.” His recent work has dealt with a theme of “the crowd” while investigating visual rhythms and static movement in painting. Genovés’ work can be seen in leading museums around the world. He has won numerous awards including the Spanish National Art Prize in 1984 and the Gold Medal for Merit in the Arts from the Spanish Culture Department.

This exhibition is organized by the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art and Marlborough Gallery, New York
