Product Description

Dazzled by the twilight of 17th-century painter Aert van der Neer’s Moonlit Landscape with a Road beside a Canal (1645–1650), contemporary Spanish artist Alberto Reguera created twenty-three paintings as an homage to the celebrated artist of the Dutch Golden Age. Each of Reguera’s paintings display an in-depth study of the representation of light and sky in the European tradition of painting, while engaging in a dialogue with Van der Neer’s Moonlit Landscape. The sensitive depiction of light in the night sky most inspired Alberto Reguera, in part because of the similarities to his own work. This new series of paintings examines and connects directly to Van der Neer’s masterpiece, and the important painterly achievements of the Dutch painter’s generation. The exhibition and accompanying publication is the second collaboration between the University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) and Alberto Reguera. While the first exhibition Blue Expansive Landscape (2015) was notable for the display of the painter’s two- and three-dimensional works, and his innovative ways of painting beyond the canvas, Homage to Aert van der Neer is a similarly complex endeavour that has been achieved through a successful partnership with UMAG, the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza and the artist.
