Schommer Retrospective at The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum

The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum is welcoming an exhibition of Alberto Schommer’s work to its BBK Room, entitled Schommer Retrospective 1952-2009.

Born in nearby Vitoria, he has produced many still life photographs, portraits, landscapes and “cracklegraphs” which have been incorporated into the Spanish canon of photography.

The Schommer Retrospective 1952-2009 offers art buffs an opportunity to learn all about the impact that his work had on the country and on other artists though this exposition of about 100 pieces.

It will be on display until May 16th in the BBK Room, with the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum open from Tuesday to Sunday – 10.00 to 20:00 local time.

Describing the artist, the establishment remarked: “His unusual, idiosyncratic approach to the portrait was to have a major impact in the 1970s and 80s, and his photographs became a kind of visual chronicle of the Transition.”
