Antonio López

Best known from Victor Erice’s 1992 film Quince Tree of the Sun, Spanish hyperrealist painter Antonio López Garcia has only had a few solo exhibitions in the course of his five-decade career. Following well-received shows at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2008 and Madrid's Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in 2011, he's now heading to Japan for a career retrospective that's being described as the ‘first and perhaps the last opportunity’ to see his work here – and they probably aren't exaggerating, either. The show features 65 pieces from throughout his career, including key works 'Gran Vía' (pictured) and the sculpture piece 'Man and Woman'.
