By | 8 September, 2011 | 0 comments

The new rooms of the Centro Cultural Conde Duque de Madrid have opened with a magnificent exhibition devoted to the work of Dutch artist Cornelis Zitman.

The exhibition can be viewed until October 16, 2011 in room 3 of the renewed exhibition space, with its renovated and improved facilities.

Admission is free and open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am till 2pm and from 6pm till 9pm. Sundays and bank holidays, the centre is open only in the mornings from 10.30am till 2pm.

Oil paintings, drawings and sculptures primarily make up this journey through the career of Cornelis Zitman, a Dutch artist who decided to flee his country in 1947 to avoid the military service. He migrated to Venezuela, a country that has left a mark in all his works emotionally.

In the room you can enjoy 25 drawings, 103 sculptures and a single oil canvas, that was still important because it was painted in 1946 and it is an important piece for the artist’s evolution.

Indian female figures with exaggerated steps, sinuous curves and spectacular volumes are those who have given Zitman his special mafe, turning him into a sculptor with a worldwide reputation, as evidenced by the many awards he has received.
