This exhibition takes us on a tour of art produced in Britain between the 15th and 20th centuries.
The show presents a total of 180 pieces -paintings, sculptures, works on paper, books, magazines and photographs - produced by nearly 100 artists. The works on display belong to various European institutions, primarily British.
Divided into seven sections, 'Treasure Island...' portrays the artistic evolution of the British Isles, from religious sculptures - damaged by the Puritans during the Reformation - to Pop Art pieces by Blake and Hamilton and Toni Cragg's emblematic 1981 sculpture `Britain Seen from the North´.
According to the exhibition's organizers, its title 'invokes the eponymous novel by the British writer Robert Louis Stevenson, showing how the island has a treasure -its art, painting and sculpture- which, like almost every treasure, remains half-hidden, waiting to be discovered.'
