Eduardo Arroyo: The Human Comedy

From February 6th, 2020 to August 16th, 2020

Following a first exhibition of these works in Madrid in 2015, Arroyo pursued his research by focusing on the characters, this time with the idea of producing an illustrated edition of Balzac’s The Human Comedy. The project was thwarted by Arroyo’s death, but he had already produced many portraits of characters from the novels. These works by Arroyo represent the first attempt by a major artist to illustrate La Comédie humaine.
