  • Bennassar, Joan
    <p>Joan Bennassar Vives (Pollença, 1950)</p> <p></p> <p>Joan Bennassar was born in Pollença in 1950. From a very young age he showed his artistic skills, so his family directed him towards painting and art. In his youth he entered the School of Arts and Crafts of Palma, where he had as a teacher Jaume Mir, who guided him towards sculpture. Bennassar, despite having a strong pictorial heritage of the Pollensina School, was never attracted by the landscaping, so he wanted to break with his roots to create his own style.</p> <p>In 1969 he entered the School of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi, where he trained as a painter and sculptor. In those years, Barcelona was a city full of culture and art, where political movements attracted youth in the last years of the Franco regime, at which time Bennassar began to be a member of the Workers' Party of Spain. Meanwhile, he continued with his pictorial production, when he discovers Antoni Tàpies - who was still a marginal artist - and this one impacts him remarkably, making Bennassar's work evolve towards a more informalist stage, with the use of materials such as sand, strings and all kinds of textures.</p> <p>His first solo exhibition was at Club Pollença in 1971. However, in the mid-70s he abandoned painting to focus fully on politics, although finally, at the end of that decade, he returned to his pictorial production so as not to abandon it anymore. , thus entering one of the most prolific stages of his career, the decade of the 80s. In this new stage, his work is developed from numerous different themes that show inner world and its imaginary creating between the big city and the small Coast town. Thus, we will find works that speak of the painter's study, the human body, the still lifes or even an esoteric world. In 1983 he exhibited for the first time at ARCO, where he discovered the frivolous world of the art market. A year later she will be married for the second time and will exhibit for the first time in the Maeght Gallery in Barcelona, ​​a space with which she will have a relationship until well into the 90s. In the mid-80s her consecration as an artist arrived and more and more focuses on the development of the work rather than the result of it.</p> <p>In the 90s, as an artist and mature man, he returns to the imaginary of his origins, of the people, of his roots, and begins to develop paintings in which pantries are represented (Queviures). In this new stage he will also reflect on himself, with self-portraits. In the 2000 will have a stage in which it will focus on eroticism, carrying out the project "Mallora erótica" (2007) together with the writer Gabriel Janer Manila.</p> <p>Throughout his artistic career, Bennassar has stood out for its thematic polarity. The feminine figure is a constant that recovers again and again in painting and sculpture, representing it not only from the beautiful and sensual point of view, but as the apex of the matriarchal society of the Mallorca of its childhood.</p> <p>Currently, Joan Bennassar resides in Mallorca.</p> <p></p> <p>Sources: http://www.bennassar.com/biografia/</p>

  • Fornés, Pablo Luís
    <p>Pablo Luís Fornés Isern (Palma, 1930 - 2006)</p> <p></p> <p>Pablo Luís Fornés Isern (Palma de Mallorca, December 15, 1930 - December 12, 2006), was a versatile artist-painter of Renaissance reminiscences and author of a splendid figurative work, full of splendor, elegance and beauty. He was also illustrator of the famous literary works of the writers Llorenç Moyà, Cela and Llorenç Villalonga among others, decorator, sculptor, poet and writer. As a young man he showed great skill in drawing and was one of the first to separate himself from the post-impressionist language of local influence that dominated the island's artistic panorama. Author of the altarpieces of three important churches in Mallorca, Sta Catalina Tomás (Palma), Sta María de Robines (Binissalem), and Sta Brígida (San Agustin), as well as countless murals for hotel companies and exclusive shops.</p> <p>In his work come together multiple and varied influences, among which can be noted that of the masters of the Italian Quattrocento, the primitive flamenco, the Mannerist of the sixteenth century or the Symbolists - and especially Moreau - end of the century . In any case, his voluptuous style and deliberately abrarocado always hinted at a vast cultural background, which has allowed his painting to be erected in a suggestive resonance box of very diverse themes: poetic, musical, mythological, theatrical, cinematographic, religious, etc. .</p> <p>He spent his last years of life in a nursing home in the area of ​​Son Armadams. He died at 75 years of age at the Rotger Clinic in Palma, due to respiratory failure, caused by an aneurysm.</p> <p></p> <p>Source and image: https://www.facebook.com/Pau-Llu%C3%ADs-Forn%C3%A9s-Isern-382981061835319/about/?entry_point=page_nav_about_item&amp;tab=page_info</p>
  • García, Bartomeu
  • García Orell, Joan
    <p>Juan García Orell (Palma, 1936 - 2008)</p> <p></p> <p>Juan García Orell started in art in a self-taught way and it was not until his middle age that he gave free rein to his imagination, creativity and visual skills. His great interest in art motivated him to experiment constantly with the new trends, reflecting in the canvas with his palette of colors a diverse range of interests, ranging from the figurative painting of his beginnings, full of flowers and bright colors, to the artistic abstraction, expressed not only through colors, but also textures. His optimism and vivacity, allowed him to perceive those small details that give life a special color, allowing him to deepen artistic experimentation without any fear, which he later fused with his experiences, to transform them into pictorial works.</p> <p>Sources: the text comes from the exhibition catalog of the "Yacht Club Cala D'or", / the photograph is from S.

  • Gil, Guillermo

His first exhibition took place in 1965, and since then he has exhibited in numerous places such as Palma, Barcelona or Valencia, as well as in important German galleries.</p> <p>His style is characterized by a classic post-impressionism, linked to the theme of Mallorcan costumbrismo, as we see in its markets or in the representations of the interior of the towns, as well as landscapes of the Sierra de Tramuntana. It is worth noting his perfect mastery of the technique, which allows him to make wonderful transparencies in order to reproduce the colors of the water of the Mallorcan coast. His lively and saturated palette continues to create wonderful works that reflect the essence of the island in large canvases.</p> <p></p> <p>Sources: http://www.galeriagabrielvanrell.com/artistas/104/ // https://www.laventanadelarte.es/exposiciones/galeria-gabriel-vanrell-galeria-d-art/illes-baleares/palma-de- mallorca / landscapes-of-mallorca / 36840 // https://www.museodeartesdecorativas.com/museo-de-artes-decorativas-de-mallorca/exposici%C3%B3n-guillem-gil/</p>
  • Guinovart, Josep
    <p>Josep Guinovart i Beltran (Barcelona 1927 - 2007)</p> <p></p> <p>Josep Guinovart was born in Barcelona in 1927. He began his training at the Escola de Mestres i Pintors, Escola d'Arts i Oficis and the FAD in Barcelona, ​​after having had a stage as a painter of walls, a job that he later claimed in his work artistic. It is not until 1948 that he will make his first solo exhibition in Barcelona, ​​and in 1951 he will create his first etchings. In 1953 he received a scholarship to study in Paris, where he acquired influence from artists such as Miró or Gaudí, as well as Cézanne or Matisse. A year later he founded the group Taüll along with other artists, but this will be very ephemeral. At the beginning of the decade of the 60 it illustrates the book of poems of Joan Salvat Papasseit with the Publishing house Ariel of Barcelona. His relationship with the city is becoming increasingly close, a relationship that led him to donate the sculptural ensemble Contorn-Entorn to the Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona. The 80s were very prolific, since he exhibited at the National Library of Madrid. At the same time, he also exhibits in New York, Bratislava, Bulgaria, Poland and the Venice Biennale.

  • Horrach Bibiloni, Tomàs
    <p>Tomàs Horrach Bibiloni (Palma, 1947 - 2012)</p> <p></p> <p>He maintained a very close relationship with the artists who formed the surrealist movement on the island (La Latina group). He began his studies at the School of Arts and Crafts of Palma and continued to study in Barcelona where he graduated in the Sant Jordi Fine Arts School. Initially he agreed to train at the school of abstract art, but disappointed by the drift that this movement took beyond the 60s, especially by the transformation of art as a mere commodity product from which succulent benefits were squeezed beyond the plastic quality of the work itself, decides to move in the most academic or artisan movement of the painting of landscapes, still lifes, still life and figures; all this applying an exceptional technique that created a school in Mallorca. On his return from Barcelona he settled in Palma and taught at the same School of Arts and Crafts in Palma, where he started as a professor of artistic drawing until 1986; He alternated the rooms between this city and Saint-Malo (of the French Brittany), where his exhibitions were very well received and recognized. There he met his wife Edith. He taught plastic and drawing classes at the School of Art of Huesca between 1998 and 2009/10. His life passed between teaching, painting and contemplation and then reflected in his paintings what was observed and analyzed. In the composition of the same many times left a halo of symbolism. His work hints in its subtle brushstrokes a language of its own. At 60 and a few years left teaching definitively and continued to the end of his days a fierce intellectual struggle against vulgarization and the prostitution of art and artistic production lack of values. Admirer of the work of Kandinsky and Malevich, I wanted to teach young people to differentiate the path from the non-academic, from the path to vulgarity and ordinariness in the conception and creation of a work of art. He died in Palma, at home, on December 30 before the end of 2012 and a day before his 65th birthday. Possibly, at rest, death will arrive in a contemplative state and with little pain.</p> <p></p> <p>Sources: http://horrach.blogspot.com.es/2013/01/tomas-horrach-in-memoriam.html // http://www.mallorcadiario.com/Sociedad/muere-el-pintor-tomas-horrach -bibiloni-114925.html</p> <p></p> <p>Image: https://horrach.blogspot.com/2013/01/tomas-horrach-in-memoriam.html portrait of Francesc Grimalt</p>

  • Roca Fuster, Joan Miquel
    <p>Joan Miquel Roca Fuster (Palma, 1942 - 2006)</p> <p></p> <p>Joan Miquel Roca Fuster was born in Palma in 1942. He trained as a painter at the School of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi (Barcelona), graduating in 1963. He then moved to Palma, his hometown, passing some stages in Valldemossa. He became professional in the 70s and 80s and achieved consideration and public in Barcelona and Palma, in addition to being respected by his colleagues for his mastery of the trade, his pictorial culture and aesthetic obsession. It is part of the Latina gallery in Palma together with artists such as Manuel Coronado or Pau Fornés, who influence each other in themes and forms. The work of Roca Fuster can be divided into four different stages. The first stage, from the mid-60s to the 70s, is notable for the influence of informalism by Saura or Tàpies, mixed with Goya and Velázquez, experimenting with the collage technique and carrying out its first exhibition in 1965. In the second stage , from 1974 to the beginning of the 80s, the technique of oil and, above all, pastel predominates. Emphasizes the clean line and the technical correction, with influences of symbolist and pre-Raphaelite painters, expressing a certain melancholy and sensitivity through the representation of birds, fruits or vases. From the 80s and until the 90s, Caravaggio will have influence, presenting austerity from dark colors and drama, while in 1990 and until his death, in 2006, he will recover the luminous colors and female figures. After portraying Sara Montiel almost naked from her modern perspective, she quickly gains a place in the market and notoriety.

    <p>Antonio Saura (Huesca, 1930 - Cuenca, 1998)</p> <p></p> <p>Antonio Saura Atarés was born in Huesca in 1930. His childhood is conditioned by the Spanish Civil War, so in those years he lives in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. A tuberculosis keeps him motionless for five years. In the decade of the 50s he held his first solo exhibition in Zaragoza, and the second in Madrid, where he presented oneiric and surrealist works. In Paris he meets the surrealist group, from which he will soon move away to create his own path. In 1957 he made his first exhibition in Paris, and in 1958 he began his Imaginary Portraits, the same year in which he performed at the Venice Biennial with Eduardo Chillida and Antoni Tàpies. In 1959 he participated for the first time in "documenta II" Kassel. In the decade of the 60 he will abandon the oil paintings and will dedicate himself completely to his graphic work from etchings, serigraphs and lithographs, even making some sculptures. In this same stage he starts the series Imaginary portraits of Goya and El perro de Goya, and exhibits for the first time in the Pierre Matisse gallery in New York. During this time he will also make his first trips to Cuba, a place where, in the following decade, he will spend long periods. At the same stage, the 70s, he published his writings for the first time and continued to develop his graphic work, exhibiting in numerous galleries in Paris - where he settled permanently in 1967 -, Amsterdam or different places in Spain. During the 80s he returned to painting on canvas and drawing, and from this moment until his untimely death in 1998 he created the most outstanding of his career as an artist. It should be noted that writing will be a fundamental part of Saura's work, since through his texts and participation in debates he will give part of his opposition to the Franco regime. In addition, his rich graphic work led him to illustrate numerous books and publications of different national and European publishers throughout his life. He was awarded in many occasions for all his work and for being one of the most important artists of Spanish painting of the twentieth century, prizes among which we highlight the Gold Medal of Fine Arts granted by King Juan Carlos I or the award Guggenheim of New York, among many others. His painting makes a bold and radical reinterpretation of everything that had been done so far, creating a visual brand that has never gone unnoticed, from his early works to today.</p> <p>Sources: http://www.antoniosaura.org/sp/su-vida-biografa-a // https://www.museoreinasofia.es/coleccion/autor/saura-antonio</p>
