These books accompany the exhibition Zuloaga: Soul of Spain at the Mikkel Museum (open until 05.09.2021). The exhibition celebrates 100 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Estonia and the Kingdom of Spain. The books and the exhibition, which has been organised in cooperation with the Ignacio Zuloaga Museum, introduce a representative selection of works by one of the greatest Spanish painters of the beginning of the 20th century, Ignacio Zuloaga (1870–1945).
“I seek the strength, boldness, and frankness of ideas, that powerful and deep cry, to summarise the Castilian soul, to sacrifice many things for the sake of asserting one that is essential. I would like to paint that colossal Castile that obsesses me with a palette of granite on a canvas of refajo skirts with brushes of wrought iron and in black and yellow. I want to paint with my heart and brain, but not with my eyes. ”
“It is not just that man is everything in Zuloaga’s paintings just as he is in those of Velázquez; it is that the landscape itself is an extension of man. Those stark landscapes, those fields, and those places and villages are human. And not made by man, not the work of men’s hands, but conceived, seen, and dreamed of by man. You might say that those men create the landscape on viewing it.”
