The Zabaleta Museum in Quesada adds a painting by the Cantabrian artist Miguel Vazquez Pesquera to its collection.

The work called ‘Lorca y Hernandez’, from 1982 has been donated by the writer Luis Garzon, according to Quesada Town Hall.

The Councillor for Culture, Juan Antonio Lopez, confirmed that: “This work of art is made in oil and crayon on cardboard.”

“The work is in a perfect state of conservation, and is divided into two parts, an upper part, in blue tones, shows three dead fish. The lower part, on a black background, has geometric motifs, in which the words love, peace and the dates 36 and 39, corresponding to the beginning and end of the Spanish Civil War.”

The Councillor went on to say that “we are very pleased that this museum continues to house works of this importance, and to have an exceptional collection of works by the best painters of the 20th century, who were friends with Rafael Zabaleta, the painter from Quesada.”
