It is auctioned next June 20 in Muds Bolano, marries of auctions of Barcelona, recently installed also in Madrid, this piece of controversial Cristóbal Toral.

Toral is a good realistic, born artist in Tower Alhaquime in 1940, who stands out for his pictures representing baggage and his inns with pendent fruits (atomic inns).

Exhibition: Realism 2007 in Castelló 120

There comes to my hands the catalog of the Exhibition “Realism 2007” of the Gallery Castelló 120, which tandrá place from February 7 until March 3. This Gallery realizes in Madrid, at the beginning of year an exhibition with young realistic artists that it turns out to be very interesting to me.

This year there exhibit authors that I like like José Luís Corella, Modesto Trigo, Guennadi Ulibin or Golucho. Some that I liked more some years ago, like Javier Banegas, and others that Maria Treviño or Carlos Muro did not know like Pedro del Toro, Francisco Roa, Christian Pignol, Alberto Morago.

Of previous calls done in absence to Lorenzo Fernandez y Kike Meana essentially.

I like very much the realistic painting. Many collectors consider it to be a "minor" category lately with somewhat typical criticism as “that does not contribute anything to the art” or that “for that is already the photo” etc. A me these comments turn out to be entertaining to me. For me the realism is something more than a fabulous skill exercise. To keep on reading»
