Prado Museum in Madrid is presenting a fantastic exhibition: Still Lifes by Juan Fernandez El Labrador. A Baroque painter, quite unknown until now.

Still Lifes by El Labrador. You can see the exhibition from March 12 to June 16, 2013. Worth it! Really different!

Curator: Ángel Aterido, specialist in Golden Age Spanish painting

Prado Museum. Still Lifes by El Labrador

Still Life with Four Bunches of Grapes, Juan Fernández el Labrador. Oil on canvas, 44 x 61 cm. c. 1630, Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado

Exhibit has two sections to show the evolution of this Baroque artist. First: Compositions from his earliest works, where he only painted bunches of grapes. Second: Compositions of his late years, where he included other elements.

Juan Fernandez aka El Labrador is an enigmatic painter. We only know that he lived away from court, dedicated to paint flowers and fruits, mainly grapes, reaching international reputation. Artist and Art historian Antonio Palomino (1653-1726) said he achieved great  fame, he devoted a few lines to “Juan Labrador Painter Insigne” supposing disciple of Luis de Morales. El Labrador died in Madrid, very old, around 1600.

We hope this current exhibition serves to study more about an artist who left so marvelous masterpieces.

Enjoy your day, Yareah magazine readers.
