Spain’s Golden Age at CaixaForum

CaixaForum Barcelona looks back to Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries in its latest exhibition, Velázquez and the Golden Age. This period saw artistic and literature endeavours in the country booming, with Seville painter Diego Velázquez a leading figure of the movement.
