A tribute in the form of an exhibition/book to the inventor of lithography.
Exhibition of the complete series of prints created by Eduardo Arroyo between 1993 and 1996 dedicated to Aloys Senefelder, the man who invented lithography.
They are based on previously existing images, captured on lithographic stones or printing plates on which the artist has intervened, erasing some elements, manipulating others or adding motifs. The result is a suite of 102 prints, reflecting the broad range of themes with which the artist was often concerned: exile, boxing, literature and the arts. The series is a complete compendium of the vast visual wisdom that Eduardo Arroyo has demonstrated in the art of printmaking.
(Madrid, 1937) Figurative painter, who ascribed particularly to what is called narrative figuration, began his artistic activity in exile in Paris, depicting motifs typical of Spain’s deep cultural traditions in a style laden with irony. Over his career he frequently dealt with topics including exile, literature, art and history. His approach to these themes has earned him considerable national and international recognition.
