The endless line
Lorenzo Goñi (Jaen, 1911 – Lausanne, Switzerland, 1992) was one of the most remarkable illustrators of the second half of the XXth century. In his long career he made thousands of drawings —for books, newspapers and magazines— that is why the title of the book refers to its endless, inexhaustible and tireless work. After the Spanish Civil War he collaborated in many publications as El Español, La Estafeta Literaria, Pueblo, La Codorniz… but especially in ABC and Blanco y Negro where he published 2,000 illustrations. These works made him a popular artist in Spain, as he became one of the hallmarks of ABC and Blanco y Negro.
This monography edited by Museo ABC is the thoroughest study ever written about his life and work. It is divided into two books: the first volume is an essay about his biography and career; and the second volume is focused on his collaboration with ABC and Blanco y Negro, where he reached the top of his artistic career.
The author, Víctor Zarza, is a professor in Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, art critic and curator.
