‘Abundance and Frugality,’ by Javier Sánchez Bellver


The painting Repasando (2016) features a copy of AV Monografías 157-158 ‘Herzog & de Meuron’

On view through 29 April at the Ateneo de Madrid is a walk through the pictorial work of the architect Javier Sánchez Bellver (Madrid, 1951), organized on the occasion of the publication of the catalog La vida quieta (Lapislázuli, 2019), with a foreword by Luis Fernández-Galiano.

The exhibition gathers 35 oil paintings with still lifes and domestic scenes that underscore the beauty of the everyday. Two issues of AV have appeared in his canvases: number 5, ‘Madrid Capital,’ in Fragmento de biblioteca, a fragment of which was reproduced on the cover of Arquitectura Viva 18, ‘Tanta teoría’; and 157-158, ‘Herzog & de Meuron (2005-2013),’ in Repasando, which illustrates the catalog front.
