Room 13 is perhaps the most important in the museum. In it we begin by contemplating a drawing by Benjamín Palencia, «Dibujo de una mujer», which brings us closer to his good work as an expressionist painter, just like Antoni Tápies with his «Fantasía», a mixed media informalist work, places us before one of the most prestigious painters in Spain.
«Campesino de la Olmeda», an oil on canvas by Álvaro Delgado, is an expressionist work of cubist influence, which reflects the testimony of its author of his passage through the Madrid region that gives its name to the painting, portraying his peasant.
Another outstanding work in the same room is the also oil on canvas by Manuel Baeza entitled “Maternidad“, which although surrealist in style has a stylization close to cubism. Just as the sketch by José Gutiérrez Solana is important for a larger work, in oil on panel, in an expressionist style with gloomy pictorial tints..
Also noteworthy is Pablo Ruiz Picasso‘s engraving of the series “La mujer y el minotauro“, within the mythological figurative tradition.
Finally, we will stop at the sculptures by Venancio Blanco, «Cisne», and at the one by Santiago de Santiago, «Cabeza del príncipe de España», both in cast bronze.
