The Modern Art Museum in Bogota is starting an exhibit today of 160 artworks of the Spanish artist Pablo Palanzuelo (1915-2007). Who? I hear you ask!
I am sure many people know of his work but the artist is not as famous as Salvador Dalí who was his contemporary. Now, Pablo was actually an architect – it says in El Tiempo – and if you have read a few of my blogs you will know what I think of architects who lean towards painting – but in any case . . . . his work only really started to get noticed in the 1980s when he himself was already in his 60s. Not an unusual age to start getting your work noticed I would say. Sometimes longevity and persistance pay off!
If I get the chance to visit I´ll take a few photos and update the blog.
PS: If you know a bit more about this artist, please add the information in the comment box.
PPS: I just checked out Pablo´s art prices on ArtPrice and they sky-rocket. So just goes to show that you do not need to be super-famous to have your artwork well quoted on the art markets!
