In search of the grotesque factor

What is grotesque in art? Hyperbolic, deformed, satirical or even incongruous are some of the words often associated with it. The Picasso Museum Málaga explores this aspect in El factor grotesco, an exhibition about the meanings and the evolution of this aesthetic category in the history of Western art.

More than 250 paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and fragments of films from almost 80 different artists brought together to explore this extraordinary topic.

Pope, by Francis Bacon
