Mª Dolores Cid narrowed us to Marcelina Poncela, founding partner of the AEPE

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.

Pure Magic in the Jury of the 86th Autumn Room

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019, the meeting of the Selection and Qualification Jury of the 86th Autumn Salon that the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors held, with the collaboration of the Maxam Foundation, and which is recognized as the Oldest and most prestigious artistic contest of those convened in Spain.
On this occasion, the jury was formed by José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the AEPE, acting as President and Secretary of the same and both with voice but without vote, and having as Members José Vicente Moreno Huart, Patron of the MAXAM Foundation, the prestigious artists Eduardo Naranjo, Alejandro Aguilar Soria, Paula Varona and Ricardo Sanz, Mª Dolores Chamero Moyano, Director of the Casa de Vacas Cultural Center and Tomás Paredes, the dean of the Art critics in Spain.


The meeting was marked by the magic that reigned at all times and that was achieved by reviewing each and every one of the works presented to the contest, works that contained life essences in each stroke, in each subject and that managed to move a jury very committed to the objectives of promoting, recognizing and disseminating creativity in the art of painting and sculpture, also serving to discover, revalue and show the public the excellent technical level of Spanish artists.
The organization insists on commenting on what if all the participating artists and the public attending the exhibition of the selected and awarded works can be sure, which will be held at the Casa del Vacas del Parque del Retiro from October 31 to 24 November 2019, is that each and every one of them have been reviewed by a magnificent jury, which has had a specific technical and objective assessment for each work.
With very varied themes, since the prizes were free content, the exhibition will be formed by a meeting of very current concerns, desires and desires, of artists who live in the 21st century and reflect the social and cultural concerns that surround them and with those who live daily.
In this edition almost three hundred artists from very different places throughout the national territory have participated, with a high quality, which has made the jury fully satisfied with some works that, as they have assured, “they have been shocked and moved by same”.
In total, twenty awards have been granted that contemplate the disciplines of painting, sculpture, drawing, engraving and watercolor, and of these, six awards are specific to sculpture, which explains the very high participation of artists in this discipline that until a few years ago I was living difficult and frankly disturbing moments.
In addition, there have been four specific prizes for painting, two for watercolor, one for engraving and one for drawing, in addition to the “Down Syndrome” Painting Medal, which for the third year will include, together with professionals in the sector, the work of one of the students who attend art classes at Down Madrid and all of them, together with the 73 selected works, 46 paintings and 27 sculptures, will make up the exhibition whose awards ceremony will take place on November 7, at 7 pm.
It will not be until that day when the winners are announced in a gala that brings together great personalities from the world of plastic arts in Spain, and will have a very prominent moment in the appointment as Honorary Partner of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, from the journalist and writer Javier Sierra, closely linked to the centennial entity for his continuous support and collaboration.
The jury has tried to get carried away by their intuition, valuing not only technically, but by their heart, achieving a balance between techniques and styles, so that no interpretation could be left out without more recommendation than the quality criteria that are being governed by the Hall of Autumn in the latest editions.
As José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and President of the Jury points out, “one of the greatest demands of the jury has been its concern for quality and because the work contains an explicit and implicit beauty that overwhelms who admires her, letting herself be carried away by the intuition and originality of some artists who have achieved magnificent works that they can well be proud of in the same way that we presume them from the AEPE ”.

It should be remembered that this year the Autumn Salon, the most prestigious and oldest artistic contest of those convened in Spain, reaches its 86th edition, which makes it unique not only for the excellent organization and experience it represents, but for The prestige that has been treasuring over the years, especially considering that it does not grant a single prize in cash and despite this, summons a very high number of participants who seek recognition not only from the public, but from other artists, of their peers, aspiration with which the call was born in 1920 and that as we see, still survives.

The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, with the unconditional support of the Maxam Foundation, announces the 86th Autumn Salon, the oldest and most prestigious artistic event in Spain, whose purpose is to stimulate creation and contribute especially to the promotion and the projection of artists in Spain.
The call has 7 free access prizes, the Down Madrid Painting Medal, reserved for artists of this group who will exhibit the winning work for the third time within the framework of the Exhibition and a total of eleven more Medals, reserved for the members of the centenary entity, whose attraction lies in the recognition of artists by other artists and in the prestigious awards, which bear the name of the founders of AEPE.
“Reaching the 86th edition of a renowned event such as the Salon de Otoño, says José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, is a triumph in itself, since no other contest in Spain treasures that age, nor a list of names such as the one that the institution has gathered all these years, names that are already part of the history of art such as Picasso, Alberti, Benlliure, the Benedito brothers, Benjamín Palencia, Vázquez Díaz “…
The 1st Autumn Salon of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors was born in 1920 and since its inception seeks the promotion of new values ​​in a line of innovative culture, that is, does not seek a display of awards that involve an economic endowment, but a excellence that transforms into the dissemination of the work and the artist, and that, according to José Gabriel Astudillo, means not endowing the awards economically, but being creative and channeling those selected and awarded on the difficult path of artistic creation.

Recognize talent is just what entities like Tritoma Cultural Management, the Getafe City Council, the Baluarte Hall of the City of Tres Cantos, Codina Escultura, Encuentro Real Estate, Santiago de Santiago and the Spanish Association of Watercolor Painters, which converge in this new edition of the Autumn Salon, next to the City Hall of Madrid, which will exhibit the selected and awarded works in the Casa de Vacas from the Parque del Retiro in Madrid from October 31 to November 24, and the Maxam Foundation, the official sponsor of the Hall.
The jury of the award, which will be made up of prestigious people in the fields of criticism, art history and artistic activity, will be chaired by the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, acting as Secretary of the same Maria Dolores Barreda Perez, Secretary General of the AEPE, will make a selection of the works presented, from which will come the winners, which will be exhibited in the Casa de Vacas of the Retiro Park in Madrid between October 31 and on November 24, 2019. The winners will be announced on November 7, at the moment of the jury’s decision, awards ceremony and opening of the exhibition.
Throughout these last 6 years, the Salon de Otoño has become a traditional event within the Spanish art scene, a must in terms of novelties, trends and new contemporary plastic proposals, as well as a showcase for the best painting and current sculpture.
Each year the artists have the opportunity to present their new creations and opt for an accredited Prize that includes the edition of a catalog, the exhibition of their pictorial work and the knowledge that it has been selected by a highly qualified and prestigious jury .
The Prize can present Spanish artists or residents in Spain, in the modalities of painting, sculpture, drawing, engraving and watercolor in formats designed to enable the participation of all creators, from 46 cms to the maximum size of 200.
