A clash between two visions of reality.

Very soon after its arrival in the 1830s, photography forged a close relationship with painting. With its objectivity and accuracy, it encouraged painters to change their perspective on their art and the world around them, and to reconsider the purpose of painting as a window onto reality.
The exhibition presented by the Thyssen Museum takes a specific interest in the unique relationship of admiration and controversy that formed between photography and painting in the 19th century, between a freshly emerging art form and one looking to be revolutionised.
