El Palacio de Gaviria

The Palace

The place chosen by Arthemisia to host the exhibition is the Gaviria Palace at Calle Arenal 9, in the heart of Madrid.

The building has just re-opened as the new exhibition space for Arthemisia, addingyet another venue to Madrid’s rich art scene. Built in the mid-1800s, it wasdesigned by the architect Aníbal Álvarez for the Marquis of Gaviria y Douza, banker,stockbroker and key member of the bourgeoisie that came to the fore in the Madridof the 19th century.

The design follows the Italian style in vogue at the time and is reminiscent of theFarnese Palace in Rome. The same style is found in other buildings like the palace ofthe Marquis of Salamanca, which took Madrid’s post-romantic high society bystorm. The building is organised around two courtyards and a grand staircase andbalustrade made out marble, original features that have survived to this day.Also known at the time as the palace “of Good Hope”—a reference to another nobletitle held by the Marquis of Gaviria—it originally opened in 1851 with a ball inhonour of Queen Isabella II of Spain. That year the daily La Nación reported that “noother palace [in Madrid] can match its luxury and magnificence, its sumptuousnessand refined taste”, also highlighting its “Bramantesco air”.

The dressed stone of the lower section of the façade contrasts with the brickcladding of the upper floors, while balconies crowned by simple curved pedimentsare the dominant feature of the first floor. The interior still boasts the originalceilings painted by Joaquín Espalter y Rull, also greatly influenced by the Italianstyle. Visitors of the Escher show will therefore be able to admire these paintingsexalting the name of Isabella II, inspired by images of Isabella the Catholic and theconquest of Granada, as well the mirrors and other original features that decoratedthe halls of the palace, whose structure the exhibition design has preserved.Closed for the last eight years, the Gaviria Palace was once one of the capital’smost popular night clubs, and before that it housed a government auction house. Anicon for a whole generation of Madrileños, it is now open again for tourists andvisitors to the capital to enjoy.
