New York–based contemporary artist Balint Zsako creates intricate and seamless collages using botanical prints and atlases of human anatomy by Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (1697–1770), Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797–1849), and Nicolas Henri Jacob (1782–1871). This series of collages, commissioned by Chicagoan Richard Harris, conveys themes of absurdity and humor present in much of Zsako’s work.

This November, Queen Sofía Spanish Institute will present BALENCIAGA: Spanish Master, the first exhibition to consider the impact of Spain's culture, history and art on one of its greatest twentieth-century sons, the legendary designer Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895-1972). Hailed as "Fashion's Picasso" by Cecil Beaton, Balenciaga's innovations transformed the way women dressed, from the opening of his Paris fashion house in 1937 until his retirement in 1968. His visionary designs and impeccable standards seduced generations of the best-dressed women in the world.
BALENCIAGA: Spanish Master,
November, 19th, 2010 to February 19th, 2011;
