Sanguine on paper. Signed and dated in Roman numerals lower right. The title at the top right. Claudio Bravo Camus was a Chilean painter who established himself above all for his compositions (particularly parcels) and hyper-realistic portraits, including those of eminent political figures. Rightly considered one of the greatest masters of hyperrealism, Claudio Bravo pursued photography in painting, but always starting from the direct observation of the objects themselves: "The eyes see much more than the camera: half tones, shadows, minute changes of color and lights,” he said. The portrait presented here, that of a well-known Moroccan football player, exudes a meticulous and mimetic realism, particularly in the man's gaze; it was created during the years in which the artist lived in Tangier, where he had taken refuge to escape Franco's dictatorship. It is presented in a frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Claudio Bravo Camus (1936-2011)

Born in 1936 in Valparaíso (Chile) into a large but rather wealthy family, Claudio Bravo went to Santiago at a young age for his studies, where he was soon noticed for his extremely realistic paintings which he had begun to create as a self-taught artist. After some formal studies, he left for Europe at the age of 21, heading to Paris but actually stopping for a long time in Barcelona and Madrid. It was in Madrid, impressed by the collection of the Prado museum, that Bravo developed his peculiar style which blends the tribute to the classical forms of the Renaissance, the luminous and highly detailed drama of certain "baroque masters" (especially Velázquez and de Zurbarán) but also a certain surrealist irony that comes to him from Salvador Dalí. In the 1960s he began a fruitful portraiture activity, creating portraits of Francisco Franco's daughter and subsequently of the dictator himself; even the Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos noticed him and called him to create portraits of himself and his wife Imelda, but also of Manila's high society. Having returned to Spain in 1968 he began to dedicate himself to the series of paintings on parcels (parcels of colored paper tied with string: which look like photographs, but in reality they are paintings!), but the oppression of the Franco regime pushed him to go elsewhere: in 1969 he was in New York, where, however, he was not well received by the local artistic community, while in 1972 he moved to Tangier, Morocco, where he rediscovered the intense and dramatic light that was so dear to him. It was in Morocco, where he died in 2011, that his production of still lifes and figurative works reached its peak, among packages, draperies and vivid interiors.

Technical specification: Sanguine

The blood, that in the artistic tradition defines a particular graphics technique, is a drawing tool, one of the oldest. It is composed of hematite, a ferrous mineral, cut into strips, and properly pointed, with which you can draw on the paper signs from the characteristic reddish colour that reminds of blood (hence the name of the blood). The mixture of iron, moreover, is often enriched with small amounts of ochre.
