This retrospective exhibition is the first to be held in Spain since 1987 and comes at a time when artists and art-historians are reassessing the modernist movement. Selected by Jeremy Lewison, Director of Collections at Tate and a world authority on Nicholson, it will present a full range of Nicholson’s work, while emphasising three key periods in his art: the 1930s, the mid 1950s and the mid 1960s. The exhibition will consist of more than 50 paintings, reliefs and objects including the magnificent, recently restored 1951 (mural) painted for the 1951 Festival of Britain, now in the Tate collection. It has never been seen outside Britain before and for over fifty years has been lost from public view. In addition to a large group of works from the Tate collection, the exhibition will include loans from many public museums and galleries, the Arts Council of England, the British Council and many private collections

A bi-lingual (English/Spanish) catalogue, with texts by Jeremy Lewison, selected writings by the artist and a chronology, was published by IVAM ISBN 84 482 3107 4
