Description

This unique exhibition in the Villanueva Pavilion at the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid combines the handmade fabrics of Miquel Barceló, embroidered by his mother, and thirty original watercolours by the Mallorcan painter.

Since 2010, Francisca Artigues, Miquel Barceló’s mother, has dedicated hundreds of hours to embroidering the designs that her son has drawn on domestic linen and cotton fabrics. Now, this handmade work can be seen. It illuminates and brings life to the figures and motifs created by Barceló, which were inspired by nature and the Mediterranean.The “Vivarium” exhibition contains 13 large embroideries by Francisca Artigues (curtains, tablecloths and quilts), and 30 of the original watercolour designs by Miquel Barceló, including various portraits of his mother and works with animal motifs.
