Published a book about the life and work of Agustín Segura Iglesias

Vice President of Honor of the AEPE

On December 20, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, accompanied by the General Secretary of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, received the President of Mellaria, the Tarifeña Association of Defense of the Cultural Heritage, Mariluz Muñoz Ruiz, and Wenceslao Segura, author of the book “Agustín Segura Iglesias: life and work of the famous Tarifeño painter”.

Mellaria contacted the AEPE as soon as they learned about the painter’s relationship with the centenary entity, seeking a collaboration that would provide documentation and details about his life and work, taking into account that as it appears in the published book, Agustín Segura Iglesias He had a close relationship during his artistic career, not only with the Autumn Salon, but with the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.

The contributions made in this regard by the Secretary General of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, thus serve to conveniently document this relationship that has been reflected in the book that can be consulted and downloaded at the following link  http: // alqantir. en / index.php / alqantir / article / viewFile / 282/290

This work corresponds to the number 53 of Puerta de Jerez and has a free and free diffusion, being an edition of Al Qantir, Monographs and Documents on the History of Tarifa; Number 24 – Year 2019, published on the occasion of “2019. Year of the Tarifeño painter Agustín Segura ”

The book details the life of the eminent and laureate painter and collects more than a hundred photographs, most of them by the artist from Tarifeño, many printed in full color, and is the culmination of the actions that the Mellaria Association has carried out around the painter, after the exhibition that took place with the same name in April thanks to the collaboration of the Wenceslao Segura Museum-Foundation and which we report promptly on this website.

Agustín Segura maintained an intense relationship with the Association of Painters and Sculptors from the moment he belonged to the entity in 1932, the year in which he was also appointed Merit Partner.

In addition, he was Medal of Honor at the 1962 Autumn Salon and Princess Sofia Extraordinary Award at the 1964 Autumn Salon.

He was Member of the Board of Directors from 1946 to 1948. Vice President from 1966 to 1970, being appointed Vice President of Honor in 1971, when he left office on the Board.

He participated in the halls of 1931, 1932, 1933, 1942, 1944, 1945, and in those of 1946, 1949, 1950, 1952, 1954, 1962, 1965, 1967 and 1969.

Jury in the Autumn Hall of 1949, he was also a Special Jury for the Medal of Honor in 1968.

Together with José Cruz Herrera, he founded the Velázquez Group, within the AEPE, together with Antonio Casero, Enrique García Carrilero, Domingo Huetos, Antonio L. Pinero, Rogelio García Vázquez, José Pérez Gil, José Valenciano and Manuel Izquierdo Vivas. As José Riquelme says: “Everyone is grouped around the Velazquez banner at a time when ‘art has been increasingly dehumanized to deviate from the representation of reality’ (Torres Balbás) and intend to follow the painting school of 19th century, when ‘painting is painting and sculpture, sculpture’ (Francisco de Cossío) ”.

Agustín Segura was born in Tarifa in 1900 and although he marched to Seville a few months after he was born, he always considered himself a Tarifeño and maintained a close relationship with his hometown, leaving in this city several of his works, including the painting of the Virgin de la Luz that has been venerated in the church of San Mateo since 1953.

During the thirties of the last century, Agustín Segura was already an accomplished painter, specialized in portraiture. During the republican period he portrayed characters from the culture such as Pío Baroja or the playwright Pedro Muñoz Seca. Three heads of government of the Second Republic posed for him, in addition to other prominent figures in public life at the time.

After the civil war, Agustín Segura further strengthened its prestige, as evidenced by the awards won at the National Exhibitions of Fine Arts, such as the Medal of Honor he won in 1945 for the painting titled Camerino.

This success motivated that the City Council of Tarifa named him the Favorite Son of the city and gave his name to the street where he was born.

His fame and consideration continued to increase and during the decades of the fifties and sixties he painted thousands of portraits of both Spanish and foreign characters, being in his words, “the best paid painter of the time.”

More than two thousand portraits made Agustín Segura, which was only part of his enormous artistic work. The painter tarifeño got the greatest mastery in the art of still lifes. But it was in the genre paintings, of strong manners style, where the artist had the opportunity to deepen the human soul.

The Agustín Segura tarifeño became one of the main cultural values of Spain and his regular exhibitions at the Cano Salon in Madrid were social events of the first order.
Among the numerous awards and honors he received, highlight the Great Cross of Alfonso X that was given to him by the Minister of Education and Science.

Javier Sierra presented the secondseason of ‘Other Worlds’

The presentation was attended by the President and the Secretary General of the AEPE

The new season of the Other Worlds series by the writer from Javier Javier Sierra is here. IFEMA in Madrid welcomed the “prologue” to the second season on Monday night before a small number of people.

The first Vice President of the Government of Spain, Carmen Calvo, as well as Manuel Blasco, senator of the PP for Teruel, Mohamed El Gammal, counselor of the Egyptian Embassy in Spain, four Planet Awards: Fernando Sánchez Dragó, Carmen Posadas , Javier Moro and Espido Freire; historical novelists such as Almudena de Arteaga, Nacho Ares and Antonio Pérez Henares; essayists like Jesús Callejo, Enrique de Vicente, Ángel Gaona, Pedro Ortega, Nacho Ares and Manuel Berrocal, communicators such as Cristina López-Schlichting, Ignacio Elguero, Isabel Lobo; the President and the General Secretary of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo and Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez; representative of the Spanish Society of Anthropology and Popular Traditions, Ramos Perera; representatives of the sport such as mountaineer César Pérez de Tudela and accredited professionals in the world of film and television.

After the presentation, it was the Egyptologist Nacho Ares who served as a guide in a private visit of a small group of friends, of the exhibition “Tutankhamun, the tomb and its treasures”, in which to continue the fantastic chapter with which the opening Second season of the series.

“The four chapters of the new series continue with the adventures of a young Javier Sierra and how he is gradually becoming interested, and with increasing intensity, in the mysteries that surround us,” Fernando Jerez told IFEMA, director of non-fiction content of Movistar +. “But what we can see this Christmas on channel # 0 is an Egyptian preamble to those chapters that will arrive in February. Sierra wanted to give us his passion for Egypt, which is also ours, approaching his favorite pharaonic enigmas in two special episodes that we will see on December 22 and 29, and then will be available on demand on our platform. ”

Javier Sierra explained that, how could it be otherwise, the first of those chapters – the one that was screened at the premiere in scoop – is dedicated to the night that Napoleon spent at the Great Pyramid of Giza in August 1799. “That history has become an obsession for me, ”he admitted.

“After I locked myself up one night in the Chamber of the King of the Great Pyramid trying to understand what happened to Napoleon in there, my perception of the world changed. Somehow I felt like dying… and whoever dies and returns from that trance, necessarily mutates. ” Sierra published a few years ago The Immortal Pyramid (Planet), a novel on this issue; He has now filmed this chapter entitled “The Pyramid Test,” and plans to launch a comic on the issue with NORMA Editorial at the end of 2020. “Yes. It is an obsession, ”he reaffirmed.

The new episodes feature remarkable cinematographic sequences shot inside the Great Pyramid and the Abydos temple, in southern Egypt. “The talent of director Alfonso Cortés-Cavanillas stands out again, filming in places often hostile to state-of-the-art technological equipment, where recording is a feat,” said Sierra.

The pyramid test can be seen on channel # 0 next Sunday, December 22, at 10 pm. And a week later, The Enigma of Omm Seti, at the same time. For the rest, we will have to wait two months. Meanwhile, the shooting of the Other Worlds team.

Soledad Lorenzo received the “Medal of Honor” from the AEPE

At an event held last Friday at the institutional headquarters of the AEPE, the art gallery owner Soledad Lorenzo collected the “Medal of Honor”, ​​which was awarded to her President José Gabriel Astudillo, in recognition of her extraordinary contribution to the art world.

Full of attendees, among which were numerous partners and friends, as well as different collaborating entities of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, an emotional event took place in which by way of introduction, the General Secretary, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, performed a human profile of the gallery owner, highlighting the spontaneous tribute, born from the heart of all those who form the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, and with special emphasis on the human values ​​that surround the person of Soledad Lorenzo.

Soledad Lorenzo, who at some moments was nervous, excited and grateful, and wanted to correspond by making a small review, always from his experience and his special experienced look, to the current art situation, in which he stood out, finds nothing new that I moved her especially.

There were many friends and admirers who wanted to accompany Soledad Lorenzo in this act, such as the Managing Director of the Thyssen Museum, Evelio Acevedo, the President of Down Madrid, Ignacio Egea, the Adviser to the Councilor for Culture of the City of Madrid, Isabel Rossel , the representative of the Councilor for Retirement, Antonio Pardo, the Director of El Taller del Prado, Francisco Molina, other illustrious recipients of the Medal of Honor, such as Rafael Botí Torres and Tomás Paredes Romero, in addition to the members of the Board of Directors, Juan Manuel López Reina, Alicia, Sánchez Camacho, Antonio Téllez de Peralta, Paloma Casado, Carmen Bonilla Carrasco, Fernando de Marta, Ana Martínez Córdoba and Itziar Zabalza.

The President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, made special mention to the authorities who have excused the attendance to the act, with special emphasis on the call of the Royal House, in which S.M. Queen Doña Sofía, Honorary President of the institution, and Infanta Doña Elena, begged her to send her most affectionate congratulations to the honoree.

As on other occasions, because of the endearing words that Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez made as an introduction, words that moved not only the honoree, but all the attendees, and by the fiery defense of his human profile, we review below the intervention of the General Secretariat:

“Soledad Lorenzo is one of those essential figures when talking about art in Spain.

As I always tell you on these occasions, you can go to her website to consult her biography, the books published about her and her work, a multitude of writings in which to dive and discover her life.

What I would like to offer you here is just a few strokes about your person, so that you can get a broader idea of ​​your conception of art.

Soledad Lorenzo is small and meticulous, patient, elegant, a full-fledged art lady, a beautiful and spiky woman who has had to suffer in her personal life great ravages from which art and work saved her. And although he has never been a collector, he sometimes stayed with works by artists that he believed were important.

After his initiation stage, he set up his own art gallery, now mythical among all of us who are part of this world, a project that closed, just as it closed a stage of his life, turning the page and reflecting on what was achieved.

They were 40 years of gallery owner who, fortunately, have been reflected in the book “A life with art”, a project prepared by Antonio Lucas and Mariano Navarro, the result of the prize that the Art and Patronage Foundation gave him in 2012.

Prophet in his land, he has also been recognized with a multitude of awards and distinctions, such as the illustrious torrelavegense, the Gold Medal of Fine Arts, the Gold Medal for Merit at Work, the Great Cross of the Civil Order of Alfonso X the Wise …

Soledad Lorenzo, although she does not know it, already has a work that links her to this Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors: it is the Gold Medal of the Madrid City Council, an original work made by the President of this centennial institution, José Pascual Ortells López …

Today he receives another Medal, the work of another of our Presidents, in this case, of Fructuoso Orduña, which will already be two works with which our house approaches this …

He has always lived events and experiences in a natural and logical way, although from a perspective of curiosity and research.

Fascinated with life, she firmly believes in the idea of ​​overcoming that we all carry inside and never complains about anything.

Since its inception, he has worked with living artists, from whom he can learn and assimilate his creativity and brilliance, which he seeks tirelessly with exquisite sensitivity.

He believes that “the wonder of art is emotional and non-transferable and culture is the basis of the progress of society.”

In his own words, “his goal has never been success, but to avoid failure.”

He thinks that despite the freedom we enjoy, we do not speak freely, but nevertheless, if it is painted freely.

An indefatigable worker, she is a strong person, who seems to have found peace far from the anguish of failure.

After having given his whole life to art and artists, surrounded by art in a unique artistic and cultural environment, from his home in Madrid de los Austrias, he looks forward to his impressive collection, deposited in the Reina Sofía Museum and continues to reflect on of the cultural and artistic reality of Spain, collaborating in an altruistic way, in activities such as the one that concerns us today in the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.

She better than anyone knows and knows the sorrows of those who dedicate their lives to the world of art; she, who has boasted and raised great contemporary artists.

Soledad Lorenzo represents everything that has already disappeared and that the artist of today misses so much: the role of a professional gallery owner.

The current galleries are limited to rent their spaces and entrust all the promotion and marketing to the artist himself, unable to cover all the necessary aspects to develop his career.

She didn’t, because she used to be a real intermediary between collectors, critics, curators, between the artist and his work.

That’s why Soledad Lorenzo meant a before and after in the art world. She understood the artists, guided them through the difficult world of creation and knew how to put herself in the place of her clients, selecting for them those works that best fit her personality.

Soledad, who despite the name, has never been alone, has understood that despite the overvalued that is the ideal of beauty, art accompanies and gathers and in some people with sensitivity, as is the case, it is essential in their lives, It is a need that never runs out.

Soledad Lorenzo values ​​the work of the gallery owners in its rightful measure, as a profession in which the gallery owner presents the artists that excite him and work so that both can live off their work.

And all that is also, and really, an art that painters and sculptors of all time value and miss today.

A whole art, as I say, that has our deepest admiration for his work and that today is thus rewarded with the award of the Medal of Honor of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors so deserved.

Thank you very much

 

Then, the President handed the Medal of Honor to Soledad Lorenzo, who received it excitedly and in which he could only thank the honor and declare himself happy for the fact of being there, and knowing himself really the object of such special attention.

Las palabras del Presidente fueron:

The President’s words were:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, authorities, dear partners, friends:

Welcome to this humble act that, although not covered by the solemn and institutional solemnity of a regular awards ceremony, does contain in itself, the best of this Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.

Free of rigid protocols, we prepare this act with the love and feeling of those who pay a sincere and emotional tribute to those who have done so much for art in Spain.

Today we deliver the Medal of Honor of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and it is up to me, as President, the honor to materialize it.

A true pride in the brilliant career and excellent biography of our honoree, who has managed to channel her vocation so successfully, helping artists of different styles and techniques, to encumbrate in the always difficult world of contemporary art.

Soledad Lorenzo helped them with her example until she achieved recognition and notoriety, also creating an environment conducive to it, for the creation and transmission of knowledge, involving the whole society and inviting her to a work of reflection on the culture that It has been fruitful and tremendously positive.

And he did everything guided by his intuition and thanks to his immense talent, the one he is born with and that cannot be learned or granted happily; talent that in ancient times was a currency, a measure of wealth.

The parable of the talents now comes to mind, which serves as a reflection to ask where our talents have gone and admire how well Soledad Lorenzo has managed to manage what she discovered.

As you all know, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors was born in 1910. The Foundation Act was signed by more than 180 great artists of the time, with whom I am sure, Soledad Lorenzo would have been excited, because we talk about artists like Sorolla, Cecilio Pla, Benlliure, Romero de Torres, Gutiérrez Solana, Miguel Blay, José Clará … and thus a long list of, allow me the bullfighting term, “first swords” of art.

Art. That is what unites us, Soledad Lorenzo and this Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, the art of those who have managed to create the right environment for talent to develop, recognize it, raise it, and present it to society to appreciate it.

We live in convulsive years, not only politically speaking. The loss of the direction of society affects all areas of life, and especially in what surrounds the world of art.

That is why we must recognize those who like Soledad Lorenzo, like this same Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, fight and bet on talent, for those who claim and value the talents in Spain.

We are institutions such as the AEPE, such as Soledad Lorenzo, now an institution and legend, who believed and continued to believe in them. Because we believed and continue to believe in their values, in their vocation.

And we clothe you with all our example. A wonderful example of more than 100 years, in our case, and a paradigm of professionalism like the one that Soledad Lorenzo brings together, to whom today we pay tribute.

A consideration and respect that I am convinced, Soledad will appreciate because it comes expressly from the artists, those who throughout his life has helped so much.

This is not a pompous award or a title awarded by high instances so far away from the patent and pathetic reality that we live today. It is a simple show of consideration to those who have known how to fall in love with modern art, on the part of those who are doing it right now, of the same artists who see with admiration who has fought so much throughout a lifetime, for them .

An honor that we grant to a lifetime of personal struggle and vicissitudes of the spirit, not for glory or profit, but for realizing something that did not exist.

A recognition with which to encourage that among all those who listen to us and dedicate themselves to the same struggle and desires, there is one that one day stands here, where Soledad Lorenzo sits today, and once again serves as an example of tenacity at the service of art and culture.

The artists, grateful, honor you today and applaud, expressing our most sincere recognition.

Después, llegó el momento de compartir entre todos los asistentes, brindando y celebrando el momento.

Another great success of Javier Sierra

Last Friday, November 29, 2019, at the headquarters of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, the writer and journalist, Planeta 2017 Award, and Honorary Partner of our centenary entity, Javier Sierra, revealed to us the mystery that surrounded life of the brilliant artist, architect, engineer and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, coinciding with the exhibition “Leonardo VIVE. Tribute to Leonardo da Vinci ”, which contemplates the tribute of the AEPE to one of the most extraordinary Renaissance artists, who had such an influence on the conception and origin of the most radically modern painting.

In a crowded room of public, the entrance with makeshift chairs had to be enabled so that all attendees could hear what Leonardo was like, being from his best known work, La Gioconda, to others his in which the mystery and winks of the creator, They signed their work by adding personal details that at first glance may go unnoticed.

The presentation of the act was in charge of José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, who thanked Javier Sierra for his willingness to always collaborate with the entity and then gave the floor to Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the AEPE, who outlined small brushstrokes of the author’s biography, with special emphasis on his personal achievements, so unusually recognized by institutions and the public.

Then it was Javier Sierra who enchanted the audience over an hour and a half that he knew little by little, leaving the audience with “honey on the lips” and above all, with a lot of questions and a new perspective of the work and life of Leonardo da Vinci.

After the talk, the attendees spoke with the author, who kindly attended to everyone and received the congratulations of a delivered audience that congratulated and summoned the writer to continue telling the mysteries that hide the works of art.

A “master lesson” that everyone can read in the bestseller “The Secret Dinner”, in which Javier Sierra carries out a narrative that reveals what the true sources that Leonardo da Vinci drank to paint the sacred work could be. known from Christendom.

The Last Supper is full of signs that indicate that behind its appearance there is much more than mixed paints: What does the knot on the tablecloth that covers the table mean? Why didn’t he paint the halos of holiness that usually adorn the heads of the apostles or Jesus in other works that represent the same scene? Not even the Passover lamb of the Jewish holiday they celebrated? Why is Leonardo himself portrayed in the play, and also with his back to Christ? Who is the true traitor? And above all, where is the Holy Grail?

Information that always interests artists and the general public, but that told by him, manages to make someone who discovers what Leonardo hides fall in love.
