Bilbao and Painting


A journey through the late 19th and early 20th centuries to discover Basque art at a time when Bilbao had come to prominence as one of Spain’s great cities.

Paintings of the time show Bilbao as a prosperous city with large parks, merchant ships in the estuary, festivals, images of everyday work at sea, and popular sportsmen. In formal terms, we can see how modern influences were gradually adopted, from French Impressionism to the different avant-garde movements.
