Jordi Curós Ventura (1930-2007) - Woman in rocking chair - Oil on canvas. Work measurements 61x46 cm. Frameless. Jordi Curós Ventura (Olot, Girona, March 4, 1930) is a Spanish painter. He trained at the Olot School of Arts and Crafts, a center of great artistic tradition. His first individual exhibition was held in the Garden of Barcelona galleries in 1950. In 1951, he began his participation in the October Salons of Barcelona. Among the Catalan artists that emerged from this important demonstration, Curós stood out, from the beginning, for his pictorial faculties and personality. Between 1958 and 1963 his painting goes through a stage of abstract tendency, with colorful arabesques and paintings with enamel qualities. Later, he will assume a figurative style characterized by the importance of light and the interest in instant capture. He belonged to the Parés room group, where he exhibited successive times between 1965 and 1989. His work is perfectly recognized, from the first stage, figurative, contemporary to the aforementioned Halls, of masses of colors clearly delimited by a marked drawing, until the current form, back to the representation, of more nuanced color, going through its stage informalist, in that his basal paintings, forming a kind of ovals, were recognized by their personal concept. In his informal era, he is attracted, by the material possibilities, by performing large-scale works, also the use of bright enamels that "turn his painting into a continuous exaltation of the textural-chromatic factor", according to Lourdes Cirlot. Carlos Areán, affirms that his painting "has evolved from a traditional figurativism of wide planes, marked volumes and solid structure, towards a technically studied use of the most varied new materials, with the consequent suppression of any objective pretext ". The influence of Informalism gives way to images taken of the natural in marine environments and markets full of flowers and fruits. The colors are piled in successive layers that overlap even on plaster to give the canvas textures of a great boldness. Figures and colors almost Fauve coexist in it with abstract pieces that allow to enjoy a different and absolutely personal vision of life. He personally exhibited in Barcelona: Sala Caralt (1952/53); Galleries Layetanas (1953); Syra Galleries (1954-55); Vayreda Hall (1956-59). In Madrid, his presentation took effect in 1953, in Biosca Galleries. He also did it individually at the Mendoza Galleries in Caracas. In 1952 he was selected by Eugenio d'Ors to appear in the X Hall of the Eleven and in 1953 he participated in the II Hispano-American Biennial of Havana, appearing in large groups such as the III Spanish-American Biennial, Space and Color in the Spanish Painting today (Rio de Janeiro, 1959 and Montevideo, 1960).

  • "Interieur aux Fleurs Jaunes" 20th Century Oil on Canvas by Emilio Grau Sala
    By Emilio Grau Sala
    Located in Madrid, ES
    EMILIO GRAU SALA Spanish, 1911 - 1975 INTERIEUR AUX FLEURS JAUNES signed "Grau Sala" (lower left) signed again, located, dated and titled "Grau Sala, Paris 61, Interieur aux fleurs jaunes" (on the reverse) oil on canvas 15 x 18-1/4 inches (38 x 46 cm.) framed: 23-1/2 x 26-1/2 (59.5 x 67 cm.) PROVENANCE Private Parisian Collection Interieur aux fleurs jaunes This interior with two female figures where also the plans made in different colors are drawing the composition. The abundant pictorial material distributed in geometric portions, gives life to the tablecloth and mother and daughter figures, in black and white colors of the jacket, while the black line takes care of the environments so as not to separate them. The fruit bowl and flowers give a cheerful touch with their pastel tones. Emilio Grau Sala came from a family of artists. He was born in Barcelona in 1911 and his father, a good cartoonist, had been one of the promoters of the "Salon des Humanistes" and made his exhibitions normally in "Sala Parés", Barcelona. His first works were exhibited at the Salon des Independents. In the years 1930-33 he had painted under the influence of Cubism, especially that of Torres García. It is from that time a painting of the port of Barcelona, ​​geometric and structural, which completely anticipated what would later be his work. His personality began fully painting watercolors and oils with a certain fantasy character, with a point of decorative instinct and themes full of naivety and grace. Romantic interiors, paddocks, port scenes, sailors, etc. Grau Sala was essentially a Mediterranean painter, son of post-impressionism and enriched with French painting of the last fifty years. Mediterranean because his work has the color and light of that land. He understood and assimilated impressionist painting very well, and for that reason he was never subject to the modules of a formulist realism, nor the sexigencias of the forms. In Paris he found the best environment to give us a fruitful and intense work, because he could use the expressive potential of French art to enrich it. All this made him a very esteemed artist everywhere where his work was known. He was also very often required to illustrate books and publications in Paris. Also his posters were very successful. He painted a large number of subjects, but perhaps the theme of horse racing is where you can see in a very clear way the joyful and optimistic life that was lived at that time. In this fabric there is an explosion of juicy and vivid colors full of ingenuity and simplicity in its composition. Only a teacher could turn the complicated into something simple and beautiful. Before this work we feel a deep emotion, the emotion of before starting a horse race. Joy and nervousness at the same time. Especially since it is a direct emotion. There are no intermediaries between our eyes and what the work intends to tell us. This is precisely what seduces and catches us of this painting. His works can be found in the Museums of the Villa de Paris, L'Ile de France Museum, at the Château de Sceaux, Honfleur Museum, La Rochelle Museum, Barcelona Museum...
