One year before the celebrations for the 4th centenary of the publication of the first part of Don Quixote in 2005, our Foundation organized this display which featured, for the first time outside National Library headquarters, twenty works by Antonio Muñoz Degrain on Cervantes’ literary masterpiece. Under the scientific direction of José Luis Díez, the Hospital de los Venerables in Seville held the exhibition from October, 14th to December, 8th, 2004. Furthermore, Focus-Abengoa Foundation promoted the restoration of the paintings as well as the revision of their frames. The project entitled Don Quijote y el mundo de lo imaginario. Una perspectiva interdisciplinar: pintura, literatura y música also included a series of conferences and concerts to commemorate the anniversary of one of the greatest works in world literature.
