About

"Two characters". Oil on canvas. Signed (bottom right corner). MARTÍNEZ NOVILLO, Cirilo (Vallecas, Madrid, 1921 - Madrid, 2008). Cirilo Martínez Novillo was a painter from Madrid who began his training in the capital (School of Arts and Crafts, Libertarian Athenian of the People of Vallecas during the Civil War, School of Painting, Sculpture and Engraving at the National Library), starting at the time of the contest his first artistic works in the world of literature. When the war ended, he was imprisoned for a year, at which time he devoted himself completely to painting. In the 1940s he went from setting up his first studio and focusing his work on figures and still lifes, with his first solo exhibition in 1942, to be known by critics at the end of the decade; the 1950s were very important in his pictorial training, toured Spain and presented his work in several national and international exhibitions, in addition to being from these years when he fits within the "School of Madrid" (collectively presents many works together with others members of the same, such as Álvaro Delgado, Luis García Ochoa, Agustín Redondela, etc.). A scholarship from the French Institute of Madrid allows him to travel to Paris for the first time in 1953, and he knows the paintings of masters such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Braque and Cézanne, and in 1960 he obtained another grant from the Juan March Foundation, returning to Paris and settling in the city for several years, reflecting in his work an aesthetic transformation that brings his painting closer to a language closer to abstraction, also modifying his concept of light. He has received numerous recognitions (Painting Prize in the II Hispano-American Biennial of 1953 in Havana-Cuba), in 1962 he obtained First Medal in the National Exhibition of Fine Arts, in 1999 he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Arte-Santander Fair in recognition of his artistic career, etc.), and his work has been seen around the world (Madrid, Paris, Zurich, New York, Barcelona, Santander, Oviedo, Zaragoza, etc.).
