About

Garfio, 1973 original mixed media papel painting painter Antonio Saura was born in Huesca on September 22, 1930. Self-taught, he began painting at age 15 during the convalescence of a long illness. In 1952 he travels to Paris. His work then evolves from initial surrealism to abstract art. In 1957 he became the leading theorist of informalism in Spain with the founding of the El Paso Group together with painters such as Rafael Canogar and Manuel Miralles of the El Paso Group. The artists who formed El Paso began a new chapter in the history of Spanish art: a free avant-garde was born after two decades of creative silence. Among the extensive production of Saura include works such as series Crucifixiones, History of Spain, Crowds, Imaginary portraits, Saurimaquias, etc. His style is defined as monochrome, using only black, or almost monochrome, introducing browns and grays. Fleeing from formal abstraction, Saura became a powerful expressionist, disregarding traditional forms of representation. His works are in the most important museums of the world. He died in Cuenca in 1998.
