Aurelio Teno Furniture

Aurelio Teno was a famous sculptor from Cordoba, Spain. He was a multifaceted artist who worked in many different mediums. He started his long career at the young age of eight years. He began as an apprentice to the sculptor Amadeo Ruiz Olmos and then moved to his workshop specializing in silver before studying painting and drawing at the School of Arts & Crafts in Cordoba. He has a large important sculpture at the NE corner of the Kennedy Center in Washington DC called Don Quixote. This was his life work. It was a gift from Spain presented for the Bicentennial of the United States and was presented back then by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía on June 3rd, 1976.

He stood out for his interpretations of Don Quixote, as the one who imagines him - mounted on the horse named Clavileño - as the first cosmonaut in history. Between 1936 and 1943, he lived in Córdoba where he trained artistically. First, as an apprentice in the workshop of the sculptor Amadeo Ruiz Olmos; later in a silverware workshop; and since 1939, in the School of Arts and Crafts of Cordoba, where he studied painting and drawing. In 1950, he moved to Madrid to work as a goldsmith; and later to Paris, where he lived for ten years. There, he extended his studies of fine arts, and is strongly influenced by Giacometti and expressionism in whole. This period in Teno’s artistic life is celebrated by several exhibitions of his paintings in the Salón del Art Libre, Palais des Beaux Arts galleries and others. At the same time, he continued to dedicate a lot of time to the creation of his famous sculptures-jewels. In 1965, he returned to Madrid although he installed his studio in the Molino del Cubo (Ávila), where he researched new plastic procedures and also exhibits his controversial polemical paintings at the Ateneo de Madrid. Begining that year, he starts a series of international exhibitions in Copenhagen, Paris, New York, Rabat and San Luis (Missouri, USA). In 1976 he consolidated his international prestige as a monumental sculptor by winning the contest for Don Quixote sculpture...
