WORKS IN MUSEUMS
Arroyo Eduardo Rodriguez was born in Madrid in 1937 is a Spanish painter of figurative style linked to pop art. Key to the new Spanish figuration, Arroyo gained national prominence in the late art circuit, from the 80s, after a distance of two decades forced by the Franco regime. Currently, his works hang in the most famous Spanish museums and creativity extends to theater designs and illustrated editions.
In 1963 exhibits in the Third Biennial of Paris, part of the group L'Abbatoir. His opposition to the Franco regime is manifested in this sample and the one made in the same year, in the Biosca gallery of Madrid it would be closed shortly after its opening. Two years later, in Paris he participates in the exhibition 25 years of peace as opposed to the twenty-fifth anniversary of Franco. During those years, some of their concerns is the controversy between the political commitment and avant-garde art. Born the series Live and Let Die or the tragic end of Marcel Duchamp (1965) and remade Miró (1966). His work is integrated fully into the Pop movement of American connotations and narrative nuances with a rich iconographic vocabulary that allows you to satirize and criticize the culture, politics and society of his time.
Erwin Bechtold, born in Cologne in 1925. In 1949 he graduated as master printer, in order to continue the family business; but he chose the artistic path. His hometown witnessed the first individual and collective performances of his work in 1950. Then he went to Paris, where he worked with Fernand Léger, and from there, planned a short trip to Barcelona, which became a permanent stay.
The fifties were decisive: a solo exhibition in Barcelona, supported by the Club 49 (underground cultural movement), and Madrid; participation in the II Spanish-American Biennial of Barcelona, and the exhibition Eine neue Richtung der Malerei in (A new way of painting) at the Kunsthalle Mannheim, where he had his first encounter with the German painters of his generation. At this time, his paintings were of high surface concentrations of materials in the center or at the edges.
In 1954 he visited Ibiza for the first time; and in 1958, after a long stay in Berlin, he moved to the island with his wife, Christina, a former estate in San Carlos; without interrupting its relations with Barcelona nor with European art centers. In recent years, the island had become an important center for artists and intellectuals from all over the world. Bechtold initiative, the Ibiza 59 group was created.
Like this it is that I was raised in the neighborhood of Four Paths and afterwards in that of New People, I studied Industrial Skill (Máquinas-Herramientas) in the then slow-Technical College Francoist of Tarragona. I was a pupil of the School of Ceramics of the Moncloa of Madrid, where I knew the silk-screen techniques besides the ones specific to the ceramics.
Here it finishes my short academic trajectory, because my step through the School of Architecture of Madrid only served so that I committed myself forever with the plastic creation, it encouraged me to the knowledge and enjoyment of the cinema, the music and the architecture itself, and linked me to the political activity progressist forever, that grant yourself when then we told him revolutionary...
Fritz Harnest began his studies at the age of 16. From 1921 to 1929 he studied painting in the Fine Arts Academy of Munich as a Carl Johann Becker Gundahl, Ludwig von Herterich and Karl Caspar’s student. In 1930 and 1931 he did study trips to France, Normandy and Paris with his friend, the painter Otto Baumann.
At the beginning of the taking of the Nazi power, he stopped painting. In 1934 he travelled to Berlin where he met up with Emil Nolde, who encouraged him to resume his work. That was followed by a conserved correspondence with Nolde. Fritz Harnest had his first solo exhibition with chalk drawings in Berlin in 1934. From that moment, he lived alternately in Hamburg, Berlin and Munich.
In 1935 Fritz got married with Mutz Ellermann. He worked as an illustrator for many years in order to maintain his family. During this period, he carried out landscapes and portraits. In 1937 the couple moved abroad, where their son Jose was born, a year after the birth of their son Ulf.

Kuhnert studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart with Heinrich Wild Man from 1957 to 1962. Initially devoted himself to the Abstract Painting, but he began his sculptures, with a rigorous constructive work in concrete in 1963. Then, from 1964, he made his first reliefs in polyester. Kuhnert was one of the first German artists who used the polyester material. Dealing with the polyester material influenced his work of the 1960s and 1970s and it soon brought about him a number of public contracts. In the 1980s, he added other materials like steel V2A to his works. At the same time, he created the series "Stable -Unstable", which were the first works in which Kuhnert worked in the "deconstruction of the engineering."
Horst Kuhnert won the Kingdom of Nepal award in the International Art Exhibition in Kathmandu in 1970.
In 1985, he was awarded with the Prize of the Lower Saxony.

Barcelona, 1893-Palm of Majorca, Spain, 1983) Painter, sculptor, engraver and Spanish potter. He studied trade and worked for two years as shop assistant in a cleaning supplies shop, until an illness obliged him to retiring during a long period in a familiar home in the small people of Mont-roig of the Camp.
Of return to Barcelona, he entered the Art Academy managed by Francisco Galí, in which he knew the last European artistic trends. Up to 1919, its paint was dominated by a formal expressionism with Fauvist and cubist influences, centered in the landscapes, portraits and nudes.
That same year he traveled to Paris and knew Picasso, Jacob and some members of the dadaist current, as Tristan Tzara. It alternated new stays in the French capital with summers in Mont-roig and its paint started to evolve towards a bigger definition of the form, now chiselled by a strong light that eliminates the contrasts. In what is thematic they stand out the first slight signs of a language between oneiric and phantasmagoric, very personal although of popular roots, which all its subsequent trajectory would mark.
Joan Pere Viladecans was born in Barcelona in 1948. In a first moment it showed interest in the poetry, the music and the fine arts and was through them that it discovered its vocation for the paint.

From this date, it carries out and international and national exhibitions, Johanesburg, Toronto, Madrid, Seville, Washington, Cologne, New York, Taipei, Stockholm. He carries out multiple posters and covers of books, newspapers and disks. In 1971 he takes part (together with other intellectuals and artists) in the closing in Montserrat in protest against the Judgment of Boroughs and the death sentence.
In 1971 he wins the prize “Primer Premi Internacional d'Art Jove” in Granollers. It projects the scenography “Calaix de Sastre” with the companyía “Claca” in homenatge to George Mèliés.
