The exhibition dedicated to María Blanchard (Santander, 1881 – Paris, 1932) seeks to recover this Spanish artist who experienced painting with all of its uncertainties and convictions and who would end up becoming one of the great figures of the avant-garde. Her artistic development came late and she did not reach creative maturity until well into her thirties, after moving to Paris. For many years, until the 1960s with the arrival of the book by Rodríguez Alcalde, she was the object of a biased vision that reduced the study of her pictorial work to a few clichés and focused primarily on finding a biographical justification for her style.
