Cai Guo-Qiang en el Prado

Authors: Alejandro Vergara, Kosme Barañano and Cai Guo-Qiang.

Spanish, also available in English. Hardcover. 24 x 33,5 cm. 184 pages.

Catalogue of the exhibition The Spirit of Painting: Cai Guo-Qiang at the Prado, held at the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid, from October 25th, 2017 to March 4th, 2018.


This exhibition, which arises from Cai Guo-Qiang’s ongoing dialogue with El Greco and in which he establishes a relationship with the great masters represented in the Prado, comprises nearly 30 paintings made with gunpowder; eight of them ignited on-site at the Salón de Reinos. Also on view are an oil and an acrylic created at the start of his activities as a painter; and various sketches and drawings.

Widely illustrated with works from all periods and techniques of the artist, this book dedicates much of its pages to illustrate the daily work of Cai Guo-Qiang at the Museo del Prado, as a "live" photographic record of his creative process. This is the first book in Spanish that shows how the Chinese artist works.

The catalogue includes four essays by Miguel Zugaza, former Director of Museo del Prado, Alejandro Vergara, curator of the exhibition and Chief of Flemish Painting of Museo del Prado, Kosme Barañano, Doctor in Art History, and the artist Cai Guo-Qiang.
