I may be biased, but Dusseldorf is truly an amazing city. It offers the benefits of a major metropolitan, yet is moderate in size making everything accessible by foot. Discovering all this city has to offer is one of my favorite hobbies. I am especially enamored with the art scene, which is undeniably rich. We have the Art Academy with its long history, where famous painters have both studied and taught. Then their are the K20 that displays art of the 20th century and the K21, which features art of the 21st century. And then there is the Kunstpalast museum, which translates “art palace“ and is currently featuring a brand-new exhibition showcasing the work of Francisco de Zubarán.
Francisco de Zubarán (1598 – 1664) is one of Europe’s most beloved and famous artists. His style perfectly captures the balance between dark shades and light colors, often depicting portraits and churches. His work has a real mystical feeling to it that has captivated audiences for centuries.
The exhibit, which is scheduled through January31st has garnered international attention. In fact Queen Letizia of Spain opened the exhibit herself! But you don’t have to be royal to experience Zubarán’s works. I suggest taking advantage of the relationship between Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel and Kunstpalast by allowing your Personal Assistant to arrange a private tour of the exhibition.
For more information on the Francisco de Zubarán exhibition as well as other artistic experiences throughout Dusseldorf, please be sure to speak with your Breidenbacher Hof Personal Assistant.
