About

Item has only been displayed in a gallery setting and is in excellent condition. The framed dimensions measure approximately 29.5 x 40 inches. Miguel Acevedo was born in 1947. He grew up in the countryside near Cordoba (Spain), where his father worked as a warden on a country estate. He attended state school there, and from an early age his only true interest in school was drawing. At art school Acevedo learned quickly and his talents progressed allowing him to complete the four-year course in two years at the young age of 14. Acevedo’s drawing skills had advanced enough for him to begin experimenting with oil paints. When he was 16, he joined the staff of a painting workshop. In 1971 he left the workshop and set up his own studio where he learned from friends of a movement of painters in the north of Spain. There he discovered new landscapes to paint and moved to a local village to paint. In 1977 the Walt Disney Corporation recruited him in order to teach their artists how to capture natural light. Acevedo states that, when looking at a painting, he expects to find good draftsmanship, composition and freshness. He respects abstract art, but does not feel it and states that “you can not paint if you do not know how to draw. Drawing is the skeleton. Drawing is everything.” In 1991 he moved north of Madrid where the Sierra de Guadarrama Mountains are in constant view. He often visits farms to study and paint the bulls. Through Acevedo’s work we find ourselves suspended in time, suddenly captured by the essence of a moment. The fluent movement and ease of his figures proves his skill as a draftsman as we the viewer are captured by the natural elements that surround us. Dust flies through the air as the running bull tramples forward, and even in his landscapes we can hear the ratcheting wagons treading through the watery creeks. He creates a scene where we the viewer can only react - our senses and emotions rise while we look through his window. His natural use of color and lighting is as if he extracted the raw elements of the earth and placed them on a canvas.
