This is an amazing exhibition of Spanish Art, displaying artists and sculptors who attempted to bring the human and physical elements to the scared. What is really exciting about this exhibition is that normally many of the exhibits are in situ. I really liked the way that the exhibition tended to juxtapose painting and sculpture. There are some striking examples such as Juan de Mesa Head of Saint John the Baptist which was fascinating and horrific at the same time. Juan Martinez Montanes The Virgin of the Immaculate Conception was extremely beautiful and Juan Martinez Montanes Saint Bruno Mediating on the Crucifixion was so strikingly mesmerising.
