Ángeles Santos Torroella

description

A Spanish painter, graphic artist, master of book illustration. Angeles Santos was a contemporary of the second generation of avant-gardists, a member of the Spanish “Society of Iberian Artists”, which in different years included Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Her art combined the features of Surrealism, Cubism, magical Realism and Expressionism.

The artist was often called Spanish Rimbaud, because the painting “The World” by the eighteen-year-old artist became a sensation of the 9th Autumn Salon in Madrid; at the age of 19, she created her best painting. However, unlike Rimbaud, Andeles Santos resumed her career after the considerable break in her work, starting to create paintings in other styles.

Famous intellectuals and creators (including poet Garcia Lorca) visited the house of the young artist in the Spanish city of Valladolid. Numerous solo exhibitions of the artist, whose creative career amounted to more than 80 years, were held in almost all the capitals of Europe, as well as in the cities of America. In 2005, the artist received the Cross Prize – Creu de Sant Jordi award from the Catalan government. Her works are included in the collections of the largest museums in Spain. The recognition of the importance and significance of the artist’s art was the inclusion of her works “Un mundo” and “La tertulia” in the book “One Hundred Best Paintings of the Twentieth Century”.
