If you like Impressionism, you will find many things to do in Madrid. Even if the capital of Spain didn’t have a great museum dedicated to this art, like the Orsay Museum in Paris, several galleries often organize exhibitions about this style. For instance, Fundacion Canal. This institution hosts the one called ‘Edgar Degas: Impresionistas en privado’ (Edgar Degas: Impressionists, privately) until May 4th.
In this exhibition, you have the chance to discover the private circles of some of the most important Impressionists and other famous artists in the 19th century, such as Ingres or Toulouse-Lautrec. Edgar Degas portrayed them using paper and pencil. This exhibition also shows more than 40 almost unknown paintings by Cezanne and other painters of the time.
Fundacion Canal is located in 2 Mateo Inurria Street, right in Plaza de Castilla, in northern Paseo de la Castellana. The nearest Metro Station is Plaza de Castilla (Lines 1, 9 and 10). The ticket is free. There are 2 hour guided tours available for families and kids, with a price of 5 euro each person.
