Last year it was the Sevillian painter Jorge Gallego García who received this prestigious award for an oil entitled “Empty”
The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, in collaboration with Google, summons the 55th Reina Sofía Prize for Painting and Sculpture 2020, an award that for the first time opens to the participation of any artist in the world in these two disciplines.
This international award is the only one of these characteristics that is awarded in the world and has already become an indisputable reference in the field of plastic arts.
The winners in previous editions were the prestigious painters Jorge Gallego or Juan José Vicente and the sculptors Coderch & Malavia or Pedro Quesada.
The 55th Reina Sofía Prize for Painting and Sculpture is managed by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and counts for its development with the invaluable support of Google. The deadline for submission of works is closed on February 7, 2020.
The jury’s decision and the award ceremony will take place at a gala chaired by S.M. Queen Doña Sofía in March, coinciding with the exhibition of the works selected for the occasion, which will take place in Madrid’s Casa de Vacas del Parque del Retiro.
The Jury, chaired by the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo and whose secretary is Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the AEPE, brings together prominent members of the academic, cultural and artistic world as the journalist Javier Sierra, the painter Eduardo Naranjo and other artists such as Alejandro Aguilar Soria, author of the visual image of the Prize.
On Friday, November 15, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors lived a special day in which, thanks to Professor Mª Dolores Cid Pérez, we were able to learn more about the Founding Partner No. 29 of our centenary institution.
After a brief presentation by the President of the AEPE, José Gabriel Astudillo, in which he thanked the author of the study for the magnificent painter, was the Secretary General, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, in charge of introducing the attendees in the relationship Marcelina Poncela with the AEPE, through her teachers and numerous friends, most of them also founding partners of the entity.
The General Secretary commented that as it happens in all the biographies of artists of the nineteenth and twentieth century, in no text, doctoral thesis or book usually appears their relationship with this house, which makes us learn that for something to be known, you must Be first studied and then offered to the public. In addition, he commented how the President has tried to strengthen this fact through our Bernardino de Pantorba Historical Archive, and specifically also with the creation of the MARCELINA PONCELA DE JARDIEL PAINTING MEDAL created in 2017.
He also added that it is the intention of the AEPE to request that the Madrid memory plan keep it in mind, by installing a plaque on the street where he lived.
As a curiosity in the afternoon, the presentation was attended by two grandchildren of the famous son of the painter, Enrique Jardiel Poncela, who attended the interesting talk thanking the memory for his great grandmother.
Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez highlighted several facts of the biography of the artist, as she met her husband when she lived in the Costanilla of San Pedro, next to the Church of San Pedro el Viejo, where Jesus the Poor is venerated, image of the that she too is devoted.
He highlighted the fate of his son Enrique, who was called “Potito” by his mother, who said that at seven he used to visit the Prado Museum in the company of his mother and, at nine he used to accompany his father to the press platform of the Congress of Deputies, where he witnessed numerous political debates. The tendency to draw appeared in Enrique before writing.
He stressed that Marcelina Poncela was a student of Alejandro Ferrant Fishermans, one of our founding partners, along with her son, the sculptor Ángel Ferrant y Vázquez, also a founding partner of the AEPE. And that he was assiduous to the Circle of Fine Arts, founded among others by Marceliano Santamaría, who was President of the Association of Painters and Sculptors elected on January 24, 1936, and resigned after being appointed President of the Circle of Fine Arts that same year . There, he related to other partners and founders of our institution, such as Sorolla, Aureliano de Beruete, Cecilio Plá, Lhardy Garrigues, Luis García Sampedro, Fernanda Francés, Zuloaga, Aniceto Marinas, …
It was definitely related, with almost all the plastic artists of the moment, both personally and artistically, since they coincided in the Circle of Fine Arts as students and subsequently attended almost all the National Exhibitions.
Professor Mª Dolores Cid Pérez delved us into her biography, making a special review of her academic training, which was very complete: good technique for the preparatory drawing of her paintings. Always drawing in pencil and charcoal, which he later transferred to oil. I drew on small and large format; in this case it was finished works, not simple notes, which was destined for competitions. He used the technique of albayalde and also used the counted pencil, very popular in the nineteenth century. He also drew pen, with great quality and deserved first class awards, and also used pastel painting but this technique is fragile and difficult to preserve so there are hardly a couple of known specimens. She was a great watercolorist, she used all these techniques well, but what she really felt comfortable with was oil painting.
In addition to the still lifes, the flowers, the landscapes, the customary scenes, Marcelina took care of the portrait both in pencil and in oil. Sometimes these portraits were based on the existence of a photograph, a very common practice at the end of the nineteenth century as many artists took advantage of this opportunity to make portraits of difficult-to-access portraits of characters but that their photographs could be found with some ease.
The cover of the Diario de Teruel of November 12, 2019, echoes the news of the recognition of the Turolense Javier Sierra as Honorary Member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.
Inside, the news expands and we discover how everything related to the writer is reported in his hometown, the most prominent example of a “prophet in his land,” who recently also received the distinction of Teruel’s Favorite Son, which has a park near the neighborhood where he lived that now bears his name, and that houses the legacy of Javier Sierra in the Public Library of Teruel, which since September, was officially renamed the State Public Library in Teruel Javier Sierra.
As we can see, any news related to one of his most illustrious “children” interests and even more so when it comes to a distinction such as that of Honor Partner, going to swell the list of names among which kings appear, such as Alfonso XIII or the Queen María Cristina, to patrons like the Duke of Alba or the Marquis of Aledo, personalities from the world of culture as writers, composers, art critics and gallery owners such as José Francés or Antonio Cobos and artists such as Eugenio Hermoso, Benedito, Vázquez Díaz. ….
On Saturday, November 9, at 9 p.m. the International Radio program (92.9 of the FM) was broadcast, which under the direction of María José Bró, featured the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and the 86 Autumn Salon.
“For the love of art” is the only radio space dedicated to the world of art and painting in the current Spanish dial, and in each new weekly event, analyze, discover and complete all artistic news through talks and gatherings such as the one That day was celebrated.
The program was attended by the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, accompanied by the Secretary General, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez and also, the journalist wanted to have the participation of the artist Damián Retamar, who is touring Extremadura and the dos Castillas the exhibition “Fragile”.
The entertaining talk focused on the centennial institution and the history of the Autumn Hall, with special emphasis on the operation of the AEPE, its work before society and, above all, the vision of art and education in the 21st century

Just when the title of “AEPE Honorary Member” had already been delivered to the journalist and writer Javier Sierra, and before the Secretary General herself proceeded to read the minutes of the Jury of the 86th Autumn Room, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, skipping the established protocol, took the floor to read an Addendum to the Minutes of the meeting of the Board of Directors on June 18, 2019, in which it is explained that taking advantage of an absence of Secretary General of the entity, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, responsible for raising the official minutes of the session, and with the unanimity of the members of the Board, it was agreed to “distinguish Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez with the title of SECRETARY PERPETUAL OF THE ASSOCIATION SPANISH PAINTS AND SCULPTORS, in recognition of their excellent and unparalleled work and dedication to the entity.
We believe that it is fair to recognize the work of those people who are exceptional and essential in the art world, people who make real the saying that success always precedes work.
All the partners enjoy that success thanks to the attitude and work of those who make us bigger every day as an institution and ensure that day by day is attended not only diligently, but correctly and in a gratifying way. That is why this institution is better every day and provides an image of seriousness and prestige that, as I said, benefits everyone.
Placing a centennial entity of the first order in the 21st century has been an important challenge that our Secretary General has amply achieved in a work model that not only is the most successful, but that more than meets and exceeds the expectations generated in this regard. .
Modernization, transparency and attention and closeness to the needs of the associates have been an unwritten rule with which it has managed to awaken the spirit of our entity and thus contribute to the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has developed as a diversified institution and open to the outside, until it becomes a modern and prosperous reality.
But in addition, preserving the history and heritage of the entity has been a priority in the work of Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who is carrying out through the Historical Archive “Bernardino de Pantorba”, a project that has crossed borders and makes us captain the research work on the history of art in Spain in the 20th century.
Its involvement is also leading us to recover the memory of the first artists of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and to be present, in this way, in the most important cultural events celebrated in Spain for this reason.
In the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors we have the honor of having magnificent artists, with exemplary people who have achieved success with a lot of work, dedication and talent.
And one of them is Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, journalist, Director of the Gazette of Fine Arts, researcher, art historian, member of the Spanish Association of Art Critics but, above all, a magnificent person of overwhelming personality, who is of justice recognize and applaud his special dedication and dedication, his good work, full of commitment and honesty, his charisma, authenticity and talent.
The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is increasingly prestigious and great because it knows how to recognize those who have a special talent and feel committed to making their work an engine for the expansion of that talent.
That is why Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez is a good portrait of the entity we want, with values and that values work, the desire to improve and the shared effort. It is the portrait of those people who fight every day for art, for artists, for culture and who do it also, investing a time, effort and a totally altruistic will and that must be recognized,
An entity is worthy of admiration when its members are too and when it treats those admirable people as they deserve. That is why we have the obligation to recognize this merit and in this way the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors wants to do it on behalf of all its partners, because making our entity better is a matter for everyone. Only in this way do we achieve that the best years of the artistic history of Spain are those that lie ahead, those that remain to be lived and those that remain to be written.
And so we signed in Madrid, on June 18, 2019, the rest of the members of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, keeping this resolution secret until the delivery of the distinction, which will take place within the framework of the Opening ceremony of the 86th Autumn Salon held at the Casa de Vacas of Madrid’s Parque del Retiro on November 7, 2019 ”.
Excited and visibly surprised, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez picked up a plaque from the President and with the emotion of the moment, she was only able to thank everyone for the immense honor that the appointment entails, since in the entire history of the centenary entity, only There has been a Perpetual Secretary whose memory draws on countless historical accounts of the AEPE.
The journalist, bestselling author and Javier Planeta Novel Award, regular collaborator of the AEPE, received last November 7, 2019, the title of Honorary Member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, in the framework of the inauguration of the 86th Autumn Salon organized by this centennial entity, the oldest and most prestigious artistic contest of all those that are convened in Spain.

For all this, we are pleased to name Javier Sierra, Honorary Member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors. ”
Afterwards, Javier Sierra collected from the hands of José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the AEPE, the accrediting diploma and a plaque, while the applause of an enthusiastic audience resonated and who has valued the work that a writer of his prestige and what this means worldwide.
For his part, Javier Sierra recalled the occasions in which he has collaborated directly with the centenary entity and especially appreciated the effort he makes to continue supporting the world of creation in Spain with such an important and impressive background.
His special collaboration with the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors began in 2014, when at the headquarters of the centennial entity, he presented for the first time to a specialized audience, composed of painters, restorers, art critics and artists in general, the novel The Master of the Prado.
As Javier Sierra himself said at the time, it was the first time since the novel was published, which was aimed especially at an audience consisting mainly of painters, that is, those who tell the stories he has told with his canvases wanted to unravel in his book, making them notice the importance of how much they paint for all those who observe his works.
In the month of June 2014, the AEPE held an end of course party, a special day of open doors attended by the students of the Portrait Workshop, friends, partners and artists who wanted to make a great session in which they painted who wanted to pose for the occasion, and in which we had an exceptional model such as the well-known writer and journalist Javier Sierra, who maintains a close relationship with the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors of collaboration and unconditional support.
But there was also another surprise and that is that the television network Telemadrid, wanted to live with us the exciting session and this was reflected in its news of 9, with a report prepared by the journalist Teresa Iborra, who approached all viewers the reality of the portrait in Spain.
There is a circumstance that this was the first time that television entered our headquarters in Infantas Street. It is true that many other events organized by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors have already been on television, but this was the first time that our headquarters did.
Javier Sierra, who was delighted to pose for such a varied turnout, delighted those gathered there and was, as usual, attentive, kind, solicitous and patient, declaring to feel “very honored” to make an impromptu model .
In September of that same year, Javier Sierra surprised us by mentioning the centennial Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors in the book that had just seen the light “The Immortal Pyramid”, the last book by Javier Sierra in which Napoléon faces one of man’s greatest desires: eternal life. In 2002 Sierra published “Napoleon’s Egyptian Secret”, but this time it was a complete, improved review of a rewrite of that adventure, with a better plot and new characters.
The generosity of its author towards our entity, led him to include the full name of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors in the Acknowledgments section, where José Gabriel Astudillo and Mª Dolores Barreda are mentioned as President and Secretary General respectively. As the author told us, he could have mentioned them individually and privately, but he preferred to give back part of the love he has always received from artists and partners.
Javier Sierra counted for the edition of this book with the special collaboration of José Gabriel Astudillo, who made four drawings of some bas-reliefs, which is why it also appears in the first pages of it.
Already in March 2015, Javier Sierra did not hesitate to accept the invitation of the AEPE to be part of the Jury of the 50th Reina Sofía Prize for Painting and Sculpture, repeating his collaboration in the editions of the 51, 52, 53 and 54 Reina Sofía Prize.
Javier Sierra (Teruel, 1971) is not only one of the most translated fiction authors of recent times – around a quarantine of languages - but he is the only Spanish writer who has managed to climb the bestseller list of The New York Times He entered the coveted top ten in 2006 with The Secret Dinner.
Expert of the historical enigma thriller and author of a dozen books between novels and essays, Sierra has more than a decade proving his radio and television communicator skills, as a Tertullian, regular collaborator or even director of several programs for the little girl screen, always around the mystery and the past. Among his works, in addition to the aforementioned bestseller, The Secret Dinner (2004), the novels The Master of the Prado (2013) and The Immortal Pyramid (2014), without neglecting his essay production with great acceptance by the public with titles such as La forbidden route and other enigmas of History (2007) and In Search of the Golden Age (2000).
Javier Sierra may well boast of being “a prophet in his land”, since last year he received the title of Favorite Son of Teruel, and this year a park was inaugurated in his honor in the city of Teruel, in the neighborhood of El Carrel in which the writer lived between 1978 and 1985, and as a brilliant climax, since September 2019, the public library of the city of Teruel is called the State Public Library in Teruel Javier Sierra.
With the delivery of this distinction, the AEPE wants to recognize its special involvement with an artistic institution very honored to have friends and collaborators who value the work that involves having captained the artistic work of twentieth-century Spain and have managed to get renewed and current to the 21st century.
