Ramón Gómez de la Serna


17 APR — 17 JUN 2018


Ramón Gómez de la Serna (Madrid, 1988 – Buenos Aires, 1963), Ramón for his friends, is an unquestionable example of the creative universe. He represented in himself one generation of creators. For some people he was «an individual generation» and for others, «Ramonismos». His life and work represent the creative fertility of a magnificent intellectual made of agile thinking and endless work.

Between 1930 and 1935, Ramón Gómez de la Serna published in Blanco y Negro magazine a series of greguerías-articles entitled Cifras de París, Cifras de Alemania, Cifras de ahora, Greguerías ilustradas  and Greguerías. These texts were accompanied by drawings made in first hand by the author, which makes these series an extraordinary combination in Ramon’s work and press literature.

The Museo ABC preserves 314 original drawings made by Ramón Gómez de la Serna and 100 have been selected for this exhibition. They are shown chronologically depending on their publication date in Blanco y Negro magazine but not necessary following the timeline, having in mind the Ramonian values of what is organized and the static, so the visitor is able to create his own itinerary through the exhibition.
