This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition ”Lluís Hortalà. Guillotina” at the Tecla Sala Art Center from May 9 to July 21, 2019.

The exhibition “Guillotina” of Lluís Hortalà is a reflection on art and power relations. With an apparently frivolous approach and painstakingly detailed execution based on the long-standing tradition of decorative painting, the artist succeeds in making us believe that we are facing, among other works, two very different fire-place mantels – one belonging to Marie Antoniette and the other to Madame du Barry – and the baseboards of the Musée du Louvre in Paris and the National Gallery in London. Hortalà’s captivating trompe-l’oeil invites us to reflect and debate.
