The Spanish painter María Moreno, Antonio López’s wife, dies at 87

Madrid / Realist artist María Moreno (Madrid, 1933) has died at the age of 87 after a long illness, sources at the Thyssen museum informed EFE, where she was one of the protagonists of the exhibition “Los realistas de Madrid” (2017).

Madrid (1933) entered the Royal Academy of San Fernando in 1954 to study Fine Arts, where he specialized in painting and met artists such as Isabel Quintanilla, Lucio Muñoz, Amalia Avia and Antonio López, with whom he married and had two daughters

An individual exhibition of his work was also held in 1973 at the Herbert Meyer-Ellinger Gallery in Frankfurt and in 1990 an important exhibition took place at the Claude Bernard Gallery in Paris.

Currently Moreno’s work is largely in the hands of private collections outside of Spain, especially in Germany, Italy and France.

The reasons for his painting include from the landscape, with a prominent place for Madrid, but also for the landscape of La Mancha, as well as the portraits of his closest surroundings in his first stage, the interiors present since the beginning of his career and Finally, the still lifes, the gardens and the flowers, for which he felt a special predilection from the 1990s.

“El sol del quince”, by Víctor Erice, who portrays the way of painting and seeing Antonio López’s life was co-produced by her.

The artist’s wake will remain open until Tuesday morning at the Tres Cantos funeral home. The funeral is scheduled to take place at 4:00 p.m., preceded by a mass, in the same place. (February 18, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
