The art of Gregorio Prieto, 1897–1992

prieto01.jpg

Predicadors del be i del mal (c. 1928–1930). My thanks to Will at 50 Watts for sending these experimental photos by Spanish artists Eduardo Chicharro (1873–1949) and Gregorio Prieto, neither of whose work I’d looked at before.

igor1.jpg

Igor Wakhévitch and feathered friend. Continuing the Francophile theme, I felt that now was a good time to plumb the mysteries of the enigmatic Igor Wakhévitch. Who?
