Until July 30, 2023, the Prado Museum is presenting a selection of 69 drawings by Emilio Sanchez Perrier (1855-1907), out of the 192 donated to the institution by the Tatiana Foundation.
Emilio Sánchez Perrier (1855-1907) is one of the most notable Spanish landscape painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He developed his professional activity between his native Seville and Paris, at the Salon where he exhibited regularly since 1880.
The exhibition offers a large selection of drawings by the artist, from the first works of his training period in Seville and his travels to Spain as an open-air painter, to the most recent, in which he manages to create real pictorial effects on paper.
The works of Emilio Sanchez-Perrier are particularly appreciated for their realism, luminosity and technical precision, in the vein of Martín Rico.
In the second half of the 19th century, Paris became the European capital of artistic modernity. Emilio Sánchez Perrier took part in the annual exhibitions of the Parisian Salon from 1880, where he obtained critical acclaim. The characteristic realism and luminosity of his works attracted the attention of international dealers, who quickly opened the doors to the North American market, where he achieved notable success.
