«Estibadores», guest art piece at the Nicanor Piñole Museum in Gijón

On 18 May, coinciding with International Museum Day, the Nicanor Piñole Museum will be displaying Estibadores, its new “guest art piece”, in the exhibition hall dedicated to Gijón and to the artist’s family environment. The painting will be on display until the end of October 2024.

Estibadores (oil on canvas, 1927) is a key piece of Nicanor Piñole’s artistic career. It invites us to reflect on the extent of the transformation undergone by the old port, where traditional fishing activity has slowly been giving way to the increasing prevalence of coal shipping.
