They will say that I have an obsession with the work of Antonio López and perhaps be in the true thing, but what happens the fact is that López me takes a fancy like these ancient artists, these big artists who do his work and not much more, because the humility and simplicity of his person, together with his art, are things of admiring in these times.
We have spoken much of him in this 2008 that happened, but it has been one year of big moments for Antonio López: first the retrospective in the Art museum of Boston, then Madrid from White Towers as the most expensive picture of a living Spanish artist.
For whom they have not seen or not it they have found out about this big artist and his work, here a small reportage of the exhibition in Boston and a walk along the principal works that were seen. Let's hope that in this 2009 podramos to see in Spain a sample so finishes of Antonio López, who by force of being wrong, is one of the Spanish artists somewhat forgotten in his ground. Also neither more nor less than the words of proper Antonio López to understand it to he and his art.
One more video The hour Chanante in his parody of the most quoted Spanish painter: Antonio López García, somewhat delirious, certainly, and with the stellar performance of Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso.
For a few weekend laughs, with the whole respect to Antonio who is one of our best artists!
They will say that this recurrence is obsessive in me on the figure of Antonio López and I will have the justificatory one: I perceive it how a full, calm artist satisfied with his work, with a profile under which it fills it with the big aura about which Walter Benjamin was speaking.
In detail the process of work, meticulous and thought-out, of the trip of artistic production of the sculptures Day and night, the immense caebzas that represent two of his grandchildren and that we can enjoy at the Station of Antocha. Nothing better than the same Antonio to explain his work.
On October 2 the division of Madrid of Christie's celebrates his 5 years of life in the country with an auction that promises to mark milestones in the Spanish art. The lot covers with stars The Cat is Rosa de Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa, whose estimation is placed between the 1,5 to 2 million euros.
The lots of this annual auction will be of ancient painting, painting of the XIXth century, impressionism and Spanish contemporary art.
As representatives of the Spanish hyper-realism we find a numerous group of authors who have devoted themselves to realize hyperrealistic works; authors who have realized hyperrealistic works without stopping realizing realistic works; and contemporary authors, young values or new promises inside the hyperrealistic production.
The Spanish hyper-realism is provided with a big number of consecrated authors. The School of Seville is represented by Juan Bautista Nieto, Cristóbal Toral and Eduardo Naranjo; and the School of Madrid, for Antonio López, Enrique Jiménez Carrero, Elizabeth Quintanilla, and Matías Quetglas.
