What does when does Eduardo Naranjo travel?

Seldom we have the pleasure in reading interviews to big Spanish artists and less speaking about his trips, but the summer and the holidays deserve to know the life of the painters.

The publication Today has interviewed Eduardo Naranjo, in a very light text (since if it had the opportunity of a chat with Orange tree he would not know where to start, but good), but well it costs to know what the realistic painter does during his trips and which some of his preferences are.

I have breakfast with bun. 1975. Matías Quetglas.

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.

Spanish hyper-realism

Wash-basin. 1967. Antonio López García.

Wash-basin. 1967. Antonio López García.

The hyper-realism is an artistic tendency born variant of the realism in the United States on the sixties, consisting of the perfection of the mastery of the drawing and the representation exaggeratedly faithful of the reality, up to a radical point realized with a big thoroughness.

The Spanish hyper-realism has a place emphasized inside the artistic panorama. Basically we find two schools inside the Spanish hyper-realism, the School of Seville headed by Eduardo Naranjo; and the School of Madrid, headed by Antonio López García.

The collection of the National museum Center of Art Queen Sophia has had a new acquisition, that we see her as marvelous: Eduardo Naranjo, our favorite Spanish painter, has donated his picture The sleep of the muses.

This picture is not one any more in the collection, but it is one of the most famous and exquisite pictures of Orange tree, identical with 1979 and belonging to the period in which Orange tree liked the interior scenes, with a poetic art intimist of high flight. Also The sleep of the muses is of the Orange tree picture that more it has been exhibited in exhibitions of the whole world.

Gallery of pictures of Eduardo Naranjo


Eduardo Naranjo is one of the painters who better has been able to find his way in the Spanish hyper-realism. This not desmerece the style of the others, but what individual turns the work of Orange tree is this luck of mirage, of secret fold that there raise some of his most realistic portraits.

The phantasmagoric break of the figure, this disposition almost acechante of the personages of his pictures returns with certain mystery aura to the look of the spectator. Here a gallery of the pictures of Orange tree that more achieve this sensation to my look.

I walk along the work of Eduardo Naranjo

If about hyper-realism we speak, Eduardo Naranjo is for my taste the best contemporary Spanish hyperrealistic painter. The subject-matters that it tackles and the skill are not alone of a resounding perfection, but they bring us a bonus in which many sensations and sensibilities become condensed.

The putting in look of the work of Orange tree is a bet to the complexity and the disturbance from a form of representation that to the first glance seems simple.

I leave this video to you with a pictures selection with two targets: to captivate once again all those who like Orange tree and to seduce all those that still do not know it.
