Fine Art comes to Marbella

Miro art MarbellaMarbella is a place to enjoy many of the good things in life, including fine weather, yachting, fast cars, glamorous nightlife, trendy beach clubs, fine dining and opulent homes, not to mention amazing views, beautiful scenery, sports and a great deal of exotic culture and history on your doorstep. Until recently, however, art was not one of the things this southern coast of Spain stood out for, but ever since the nearby regional capital of Málaga transformed itself into a leading European cultural centre there has been a change in the air. Málaga now boasts top cultural attractions such as the Roman amphitheatre at the base of the Moorish castle citadel that houses a luxury Parador hotel. In addition there is the Picasso Museum, the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the magnificent Car Museum, the elegant Teatro Cervantes – the city’s very own La Scala – and the birthplace of Pablo Ruiz Picasso, to name but a few. 6526701The Fine Art Exhibition Not to be outdone, this summer Marbella – or more specifically, Puerto Banús – will host its very own fine art exhibition, featuring the works of such masters as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, René Magritte, Alberto Giacometti, Emil Nolde, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin and of course, Pablo Picasso himself. Another star of this summer-long exhibition, which runs from July to the end of September, is Wassily Kandinsky, the artist who together with Picasso commands the highest sums in art auctions today. The exhibition is held at the Club del Mar yacht club  near the watchtower in Puerto Banús, a fitting venue for such world-class art as it is just metres away from where luxury cars pull up before some of the most sumptuous yachts in the Mediterranean. An elegant setting, the exhibition will also host invitation-only cocktail launches for the rotating programme of exhibitions, which also include the works of contemporary artists such as Miquel Arnal, Arthur Djoroukhian and Carlos Mariné, not to mention the unique patented blue sculptures of Yves Klein. The exhibition, organised by the Jean-Paul Perrier gallery of Barcelona, contains collections shown in Monaco, the MOMA in New York, the Tate Modern in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris – as well as some highly unique pieces not seen in the public realm for many a year.
