Toledo, Spain, 1935.
Rafael Cano García (Rafael Canogar) is one of the most representative artists of Spanish art of the second half of the 20th century.
"Painter full of concerns, endowed with surprising activity, with the enthusiasm of a young artist who starts in the constant struggle to find his own language, Rafael Canogar is a calm man, of a profound humanity, full of vital and balanced impulse . How is his painting: the opposite of an act of gesticulation and spectacle. To Canogar his art is rigor, reflection, projection of a theoretical rationality that never departs from some essential and primary elements of painting ", as described by Víctor Nieto Alcaide in Rafael Canogar: El paso de la pintura (2006).
