Jose Caballero
Born in 1918, Huelva

He abandoned his engineering studies in Madrid in order to study in Vazquez Diaz school in letter’s studio.

He was a friend of Federico Garcia Lorca, with whom he shared a common exhibition of drawings in Huelva. This friendship had a decisive influence on Caballero’s aesthetic approach.

Introduced by Lorca, he frequented the world of poets in pre-civil-war Madrid. He designed the set for Lorca’s “Bodas de Sangre” and then joined “La Barraca” team as scenographer and sometimes as an actor.

This was the beginning of his surrealist phase that continued until 1950, in which year he took off towards a style of abstract painting that combined fermentation of expressionist tendencies and relics of surrealism.

He won an international award for his decoration of Geneva Opera Theatre.
