The Carmen Thyssen Museum in Andorra opens this Sunday, October 6, with a new exhibition called “Influencers” – a collection of 27 works of art by artists and sculptors who worked at different times: from classical works, such as paintings by Van Goyen, to pop art style works of artists such as Andy Warhol, who immortalized Mick Jagger.
“An artist can be inspired by the work of other artists, contemporaries, or those who created in an earlier time. The purpose of the exhibition is to show this influence,” explained the art director of the museum Guillermo Cervera.
The exhibition is curious with numerous interactive offers. In addition to the ability to touch exact copies of works of art (including the most expensive sculpture by Auguste Rodin ever sold at auctions – “Eternal Spring”), the museum can also find texts of textured braille.
The museum also offers a modern audio guide.
Interactive screens have also been updated and contain a lot of interesting new information. “For example, with the help of new technologies, you can see the initial sketch of Van Goyen’s work, which the artist made with charcoal on a wooden table,” Guillermo Server said.
In the new collection, you can also see the portrait of the owner of the collection Carmen Thyssen, Mercedes Lasarte (Tita, Los Angeles 1980).
The exhibition will be open for eleven months.
