InformationTHE SERIES OF PAINTINGS OF THE LATE FIFTIES WHO CONQUERED THE OPINION BE EXPOSED IN INTERNATIONAL ART GALLERY FERNÁNDEZBRASO.
Historical works, which marked trend and were rated with the best reviews of the most influential experts in the late fifties and early sixties.
Paintings that toured the museums in New York, Washington, Paris, who were part of the biennial rewarded the world's leading artists and ended in major international collections of twentieth century art.
It is difficult to summarize in a few lines the importance of the works Luis Feito (Madrid, 1929) conducted in those years and the art-historical moment to which they belonged. Feito going to Paris in 1956 attracted by the freedom and excitement of the international forefront. In those years in mainstream art was informalism-European version of American Abstract Expressionism, which conceptually derived from the Surrealist movement and was heavily influenced by the philosophy and existentialist literature of the time. Both trends further radicalized approaches in relation to exploration and representation of a more personal, intimate and subjective artist, deepening in creating an abstract language that is disassociated from the visible world and trying to create emotions and feelings through color, gesture and matter. If to that we add some artistic revolution traits of traditional Spanish culture, especially the artists of a more dramatic and expressionistic, and also were seen as an interpretation of the Spanish political situation of the moment, the result was a visual language innovative and powerful, personal and full of character, which fascinated and attracted the attention of major estates artistic moment.
After biennials be Hispanic, the Sao Paolo, Alexandria and Venice, the exhibition at MoMA, the Guggenheim and in major European capitals which overwhelm the most optimistic forecasts in relation to international interest in Spanish art of the period.
Feito and his bandmates from El Paso, created by Saura in 1957, starred in the shining moment and admired the Spanish art of the past few years, a golden age that we have not and we should now enjoy to receive as an achievement of Spanish culture that we must be very proud.
