Manolo Valdés

From to

On April 13th, the City of Locarno will inaugurate the new exhibition season of the Museum Casa Rusca welcoming the famous Spanish artist Manolo Valdés (Valencia, 1942).

The exhibition, the first in Switzerland, will be curated by Rudy Chiappini and will host over 50 of the most significant works of the great master's long career, made from the mid-eighties up to the present day. 

The suggestive rooms and the court of Casa Rusca will be animated by paintings and sculptures of elegant figures of ladies, majestic heads with female features, equestrian statues of noblewomen and knights.

The works of Manolo Valdés are part of the most prestigious public and private collections; you can admire them at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, at the Musée National d'Art Moderne Centre George Pompidou in Paris, at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, at the Fundación del Museo Guggenheim in Bilbao, at the Kunstmuseum in Berlin, just to name a few.
