BRITISH art from the Tudors to the Thatcher era is being celebrated in a wide-ranging exhibition now showing in Spain.
Treasure Island: British Art From Holbein to Hockney showcases five centuries of paintings and sculpture in a bid to help Spaniards become more familiar with British art.
The show, which runs until January 20 2013 at Madrid’s Juan March Foundation, includes works by Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon as well as the landscapes of Constable and Turner.
It also features more contemporary art including Peter Blake’s cover for The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper album.
Light-hearted displays highlighting eccentric British habits such as making lists and hoarding can also be viewed.
