Benito Pérez Galdós. The Truth of Human Nature

Benito Pérez Galdós. The Truth of Human Nature

The writings of Benito Pérez Galdós (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1843-Madrid, 1920) paint an extraordinary picture in words of Spanish nineteenth-century customs and history. This nineteenth-century novelist, a man imbued with the positivist philosophy, liberalism and anticlericalism of his time, depicted the world he saw and was interested in with a universally acclaimed art.

The exhibition surveys the life of the Canary-born writer on the centenary of his death. It is organised chronologically and divided into the four essential periods in his life. The biographical and personal literary content is presented in the cultural, historical and political context of the period.

All the components of the show are designed to be educational. Following the basic chronological arrangement of his life and work within the cultural context of the period, it explores several themes: the literary scene, the political environment, his travels around Europe, and the importance of music, the graphic arts and painting in his oeuvre.
