Benjamín Palencia

Albacete, Spain, 1894-1980

Initially dazzled by a surrealism of zoomorphic and vegetal forms, he will keep certain aspects of cubism in his retina that will be key in the schematization of his landscapes, without doubt the most representative of his abundant work. If in 1932 he had joined the group of Constructive art, after the Civil War he practices an austere realism, which recovers much of the poetics of the Castilian landscape, and leads to the so-called Iberian Fauvism that would make him one of Eugenio d's pupils 'Ors and his Brief Academy.
