About

Birth of Venus. Original tapestry RAVENTÓS Mª Assumpció – (San Sadurní d’Anoia, Barcelona 1930). Raventos trained at the elite Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Raventós expanded her studies in etching and lithography at the Friedlaender workshop (Paris) and Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. She also made a later trip to the orient to study Japanese print. From 1955 to the present day, she has held twenty-three solo exhibitions of her work mainly in Spain, but also overseas. During 1952-1957, she went to the School of Arts and Crafts in Barcelona to study tapestry techniques from the hands of a master Josep Grau-Garriga. She gained a scholarship at Amigó Cuyàs Foundation and would later travel to Castilla and Extremadura. She also produced etchings at the Arts iel Llibre studio in Barcelona and Johnny Friedlaender workshop in Paris. During 1962-1965, she participated in the ‘Group Krit’ exhibitions in Catalonia and in main cities throughout Italy, Germany, Sweden and Hong Kong. She participated in the whole series of ‘Female Hall of Contemporary Art’ (1962-1969) and ‘May Salon’ (1962’1964) and was also president of these exhibitions. She officially opened a painting and etching exhibition and would present new techniques to the Institute of American Studies in Barcelona. She is appointed Professor of Drawing and Color at IADE (Institute of Art and Decorations) and developed this role from 1968-1972. She was also appointed Deputy Chairman Professor of Etchings in the academic year 1969-1970 at the “Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts” in Barcelona.
