Exhibition "Icons of the 20th Century" in the Reial Cercle Artístic de Barcelona

10 May, 2018

This exhibition presents the 48 portraits that I painted of distinguished individuals who in some way have marked the events of the past century. Scientists, artists from film, song and dance, musicians, writers, painters, researchers, and other people who have contributed towards changing history through their creativity, value or humanity.

The inauguration ceremony was chaired by the Culture councilor of Sant Cugat, by the President of the Royal Cercle Artístic of Barcelona, by different personalities of the International Rotary Club and by a large number of public attending.

At the same time, the book “Icons of the 20th Century” is presented, reproducing the 48 portraits of the iconic characters of the 20th century. Each of the portraits is accompanied by a short biography written by Manel Dominguez, highlighting each individual’s most significant actions. The prologue of the book was written by Víctor Fernández.
