Fundición Codina, colaborador del 87 Salón de Otoño de la AEPE

Fruto de una intensa y estrecha labor de colaboración entre la Asociación Española de Pintores y Escultores y la Fundición Codina, en el año 2014 se estableció la concesión del “Premio Fundición Codina”, dotado con una importante escultura artística salida de sus talleres o la fundición de una obra, para la edición número 87 del tradicional Salón de Otoño.

La historia de cinco generaciones de esta familia es la historia de nuestro patrimonio escultórico. Su origen se remonta a la actividad de Federico Masriera y Francesc Vidal en la Barcelona modernista del siglo XIX. En 1891 Federico abrió su propia fundición artística, junto a su sobrino, a la que llamarían Masriera y Campins, en la que recuperaron la técnica de la cera perdida. Al cabo de un tiempo Masriera abandonó la empresa y Campins se asoció con Benito de Codina. Poco después se trasladaron a Madrid y fueron el germen de la actual Fundición Codina Hermanos, cuyos hornos desde la calle Cartagena a la de Albarracín hasta llegar al emplazamiento actual en Paracuellos del Jarama han dado forma a las obras de más de 750 escultores utilizando 12.000 toneladas de bronce fundido.

Codina ha sido testigo y protagonista de la evolución de las corrientes artísticas del país, desde los albores del Modernismo, las nuevas corrientes del Noucentismo catalán, las Vanguardias y el resto de los movimientos sociales y artísticos hasta llegar a la escultura actual. Esta es una extraordinaria aventura que ha sobrevivido del siglo XIX al XXI.

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 finalist works will be exhibited at the Casa de Vacas del Retiro in Madrid from October 31 to November 24

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 .

Foundry Codina, collaborator of 83 Salon d’Automne

The story of five generations of this family is the history of our sculptural heritage. Its origin dates back to the activity of Federico Masriera and Francesc Vidal in the nineteenth century modernist Barcelona. Federico in 1891 opened his own artistic foundry, with his nephew, which Masriera and Campins call, which recovered the lost wax technique. After a while Masriera and Campins left the company partnered with Benito Codina. Shortly after they moved to Madrid and were the germ of the current foundry Codina Hermanos, whose furnaces from the street Cartagena to Albarracin until the present location in Paracuellos del Jarama have shaped the works of more than 750 sculptors using 12,000 tons cast bronze.

The result of intensive and close collaborative work with the Codina Foundry, in 2014 the award “Foundry Codina Award” was established, endowed with an important artistic sculpture out of their workshops or melting of a work, for the edition 81 traditional Autumn Salon.

A little history

Youth friendship between Federico Masriera and Francesc Vidal, the seed emerges Smelter. Francesc Vidal, head of the artistic industries F. Vidal and Company, was one of the promoters of decorative arts at the dawn of Modernism.

Since opening its first store in 1878, he highlighted by the bold initiative in Catalonia to introduce a new concept of interior design from a global, modern and artistic perspective. Vidal large workshops were the center of experimentation and creation, where the ideals of the English Arts & Crafts movement were answered in each of its artistic sections.

More than two hundred craftsmen worked on building interiors and furniture were generally identifiable by the combination of decorative elements. Federico Masriera, learned the trade at the prestigious jewelry shop and silver from his father José Masriera. Among the members of the Masriera family, dedicated to the goldsmith since 1839, also it highlights the figure of his son Louis, responsible for the designs considered best collection of jewelry in the world. Their designs inspired by Modernism revolutionized the world of Spanish jewelery.

Francesc and Federico were the drivers of light decorative arts of Modernism. Their biographies are intertwined with such big names as Domenech i Montaner, Gaudí, Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Miguel Blay, etc.

In the Castell dels Tres Dragons, particularly in the restaurant of the Exhibition and directed by Lluis Domenech i Montaner and Antoni M. Gallissà, an important group of artists gather. Many of them had collaborated with Francesc Vidal, a true promoter of the arts. Thus, the figures of Frederic Masriera, Eusebi Arnau, Antoni Jaume Pujol Rigalt and contribute to the rise of the decorative arts.

The company could not be more fruitful and Catalan Modernista craft experienced strong growth, especially from their jobs. Born of enthusiasm and interest for and development of artistic Federico Masriera industry invested its capital in expanding artistic workshops with known casting advances.

They then began to melt large sculptural groups, highlighting the Columbus statue in Barcelona; figure that crowns the monument inaugurated in June 1888 for the Universal Exhibition of that year.

The company is dissolved and, in 1891, Federico mounted his own artistic foundry, which from 1896 renamed Masriera i Campins by partnering with his nephew Antoni Campins. One of his contributions was the recovery of the art foundry lost wax, giving higher quality parts. They made reproductions of ancient works of art and created the so-called “living bronzes” and specializing in decorative sculpture of small dimensions that was available to a wider audience.

“… Be so recent application of the procedure in Spain, either by the scarcity of publications dealing with such matters in our country, and especially by the small of here interested in art things relatively few is it true that the lost wax casting is almost completely unknown … “

So the article published in 1903 in the Journal of Public Works, Federico Masriera, founder of the Art Foundry Masriera and Campins, predecessor of the current Codina Hermanos begins.

They have over 110 years of that article and after five generations, always continuing in this office, with the same principles of our founder. “It can not be a purely mechanical and industrial process, there must be also artistic feeling in almost all operations.”

As this is a new procedure in Spain, from the beginning had to face great difficulties, lack of some materials, experience of the operators, local deficiencies, etc.

tests with small pieces were made and in December 1893 the first large work lost wax melted in Spain. It was a group of three figures entitled “GERONA 1809”, work by sculptor Antonio Parera.

Until then, the works lost wax casting erected in our country had been made abroad, mainly in Italy. Soon the interest and confidence of the most famous artists, which soon ceased to send its models abroad, to bring them to this casting was achieved.

After learning that expensive, a new establishment with great artistic and mechanical elements mounted. The smelter reached such a development that it came the most important monuments, with the signatures of the most renowned Spanish sculptors and some other foreigner. The house won the Grand Prize of Honor at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900.

In 1902 they opened their own shop in Barcelona, ​​decorated by Victor Masriera. These were the foundations of an industry that Antonio Campins, with twenty-two, began after a trip by smelters Rome, Milan and Naples.

Years later Masriera and Campins left the cast was associated with his brother Benito Codina, great-grandfather of the current directors Miguel Angel artisans and Maria Luisa Codina. They moved to Madrid smelter. By then it was called “La Metallo”.

Eventually her three children, Francisco, Benito and Joaquín became part of the company. The cast remained the most prestigious in the country.

Then two descendants of Benito, Juan Codina and his brother Miguel Angel joined. Already at that time the foundry Codina Hermanos was called. After the death of Miguel Angel, his sons Michelangelo and Maria Luisa picked up the baton, and a few years ago the last of the saga, the son of Maria Luisa, Julio joined. Codina has been witness and protagonist of the evolution of the artistic currents of the country, since the dawn of Modernism, the new currents of Catalan Noucentisme, the Vanguards and other social and artistic movements to reach the current sculpture. This is an extraordinary adventure that has survived the nineteenth century XXI.
