Oil on Canvas, Martínez Novillo, Cirilo 'Madrid, 1921-2008'



Signed. Cirilo Martínez Novillo is one of the most outstanding representatives of the so-called School of Madrid, a city where he began his training at the School of Arts & Crafts. During the Civil War he entered the School of Painting and went to the workshop of Daniel Vázquez Díaz, who became his teacher, supporting him throughout his career. In his workshop, Martínez Novillo meets some of the painters linked to the School of Madrid: Álvaro Delgado, Gregorio del Olmo, García Ochoa or San José. In 1946 he presented his work for the first time, within the framework of a collective held at the Bucholz gallery in Madrid. The following year he will hold his first solo exhibition in this same gallery. In 1948 he held an exhibition in the printing room of the Museum of Modern Art in Madrid, the critic began to echo his work and was selected to participate in the exhibition "Spanish Art", held in Buenos Aires and organized by the Ministry of Education. From this moment he will make samples in various Spanish cities and in France, and will participate in groups such as the Venice Biennial (1950) or the Salon of the Eleven (1951). Between 1952 and 1953 he traveled to Paris three times thanks to different scholarships. His period of maturity begins with a new visit to Paris (early sixties), to later travel to Switzerland, Germany, Holland and Belgium, obtaining several medals in the National Exhibitions of Fine Arts, as well as the Painting Prize of the Biennial Hispanic American of Cuba. Although not part of the Second School of Vallecas, Martínez Novillo's painting is aesthetically close to that of the group. His production focuses mainly on landscape painting and still lifes, although at first it is also dedicated to the figure. The painter elaborates his landscapes through a direct contemplation of nature, not of his copy, because later in his study he makes a selection of what interests him. Cirilo Martínez Novillo is represented at the Reina Sofía Museum, the Mapfre, AENA, Gaya Nuño and Santander Central Hispano Foundations, the Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art in Madrid, the Fine Arts of Bilbao and Oviedo, the Argentaria, Caja España and Telefónica collections and the Valdepeñas Museum. Size: 50 x 61 cm; 69 x 79,5 cm (marco). 4 cm (Depth).
