Anantara Villa Padierna Palace announces a delightful new Art Journey launching in May, allowing guests to discover the diverse wealth of local art in culturally rich Andalusia. With a region brimming with local stories to tell, guests can embark on a unique journey discovering the breadth of creative talent that was and continues to be inspired by this sun-kissed land, as well as painting with a local artist in one of the region’s most picturesque villages.
Guests will embark on their Art Journey strolling through the charming, meandering streets of Málaga and indulging in the city’s most famous local, Pablo Picasso’s incredible masterpieces with a local expert. The Picasso Museum celebrates the 20th century’s most prolific artist, who was born in the city of Málaga and whose collection of works on display celebrate the diverse themes and ground-breaking styles that portray the evolution of his work spanning almost 80 years. Picasso’s influence on 20th century art is second to none, and guests will thrill in discovering first-hand the influence that the Málaga region and the Mediterranean had on the creative genius.
Guests will learn how to paint with watercolours with a local artist against a sensational backdrop as they take their easels to the picture-postcard village of Casares, a charmingly beautiful, white-washed village set on the side of a hilltop offering spectacular views alongside enchanting, rustic architecture. The bright blue sky of Southern Spain set against the white-washed village perched dramatically to the hilltop will no doubt inspire all painting enthusiasts, and there will be plenty of time to discover and savour the village’s cobbled streets and flavours.
Anantara Villa Padierna Palace is proud to celebrate Spain’s artistic heritage and displays its own rich collection of over 1,200 works of art throughout the grounds of the hotel, including pieces by lesser-known local artists it is only too happy to shine the spotlight on. Guests will be quided on a walk through the unique art collection by the hotel’s own art expert and can discover a breadth of diverse talent on both a national and local scale.
Elegance and authenticity sum up the spirit of this glamorous, yet relaxed 132-room, suite and pool villa hotel which delights in welcoming guests to experience its warm Andalusian hospitality.
