Descripción

The friendship between Daniel Vázquez Díaz and Gerardo Diego led to several articles published by the poet of the Generation of 1927 in which, aside from noting his friend’s importance within Spanish painting, he underlined the significance of the relationship they maintained since the decisive years when avant-garde literature and art irrupted in Spain.

This portrait of Gerardo Diego by Vázquez Díaz conveys a feeling of inner peace and luminous spirituality. The light configures a mask that surrounds his forehead, eyes, nose, and mouth; where the essence of the character resides. The meticulously delineated eyes belie a transcendent distance and focus instead on the proximity of things, in line with Gerardo Diego’s humanism, based on consciousness and sensitivity.
