The painter, illustrator, and engraver on his work in an extensive collection of texts and images

Monographic glossary with iconography

As a successor to Diego Vélasquez, Francisco de Goya, and Pablo Picasso, Antonio Saura (1930–1998) continued the multifaceted Spanish art tradition through his colorful, expressive oeuvre, which is full of contemporary critical allusions and an independent, influential formal vocabulary. This publication unfolds the universe of this multitalented artist for the reader. All of the texts are by Saura himself, resulting in an authentic glossary of the central aspects of his body of work. The artist explains his preferred techniques, such as grattage, as well as various iconographic references in his works, using key words such as narration, puzzle, or cocktail party. He also discusses the genesis of numerous portraits and his relationships to his subjects, the process of depicting the head and face in general, and describes his exploration of literary works and their illustration.
