The sensation of the exhibition is that the "Portrait of the Family of Juan Carlos I" by Antonio López -most renowned Spanish painter alive-, is shown for the first time after 20 years in the making. It shows King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofía, Prince Felipe, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, as they were in 1994.

Spanish royal portrait that was 20 years in the making finally unveiled

who knows what they might have thought of their relationship 20 years ago after having seen that portrait!

NOT in my opinion... they might just have well have commissioned a vast photograph, there is nothing 'painterly' or visually arresting about it, whatsoever !

Well, Antonio López's style is hyperrealism.

I love his panoramic views of Madrid.
