"Family of Skeletons" bag
100% cotton. 42 x 37 cm.
On the occasion of the exhibition On the Reverse, held at the Museo Nacional del Prado from 7 November 2023 to 3 March 2024, the magnificent work reproduced on this bag is presented to the public: Family of Skeletons (ca. 1800) by José López Enguídanos, from the Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid. In the context of this exhibition, this work shows how the artist fuses on its obverse and in a single plane this double perspective of two skeletons seen from the front and the back, creating an image with an unintentionally sinister and humorous tone that arises from details such as the outstretched hands that are touching, or almost touching.
