The catalogue accompanying the Hermitage Foundation's exhibition "El Modernismo.de Sorolla à Picasso, 1880-1918", offers a global vision of Spanish art at the dawn of the 20th century. Centred on painters of the "1898 generation" resulting from the extreme turbulence traversed by Spain throughout the nineteenth century, the exhibition shows the evolution experienced by these artists. Oscillating between respect for Hispanic traditions and modernity, their works are part of the openness of the Spanish avant-garde. Exceptionally rich and diverse, artistic production in Spain at the dawn of the twentieth century remains poorly known outside his country of origin. Between the death of Goya and the Cubist period of Picasso however extend some fascinating decades, which see forming the beginnings of modern Hispanic art. Thanks to this exhibition, the Fondation de l Hermitage offers its visitors the discovery of some of Spain's hidden treasures, many of which are presented for the first time in Switzerland. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition contains texts from William Hauptman, curator of the exhibition, Blanca Pons-Sorolla (great-granddaughter of painter Joachin Sorolla) and Javier Baron (curator at the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid). The hundred or so works exhibited are entirely reproduced in colour and include artists as diverse as Anglada, Beruete, Casas, Mir, Picasso, Pinazo, Regoyos, Rusiñol, Sorolla and Zuloaga
