IN PRIEGO DE CÓRDOBA – LOZANO SIDRO
27 FEB 2020 — 25 FEB 2021
At the Casa Museo Adolfo Lozano Sidro in Priego de Córdoba (Andalusia), in collaboration with Museo ABC, you can visit the exhibition Man Stuff.
Although the female figure is prominent protagonist of the works of Adolfo Lozano Sidro, the masculine representations also occupy an important place in his production, that is why we wanted to show the creative richness of the artist when addressing the masculine figure. This exhibition is a selection of drawings made for the magazine Blanco y Negro and the newspaper ABC, which complement other male portraits by Lozano Sidro exhibited in his House Museum.
Lozano Sidro has left us a rich repertoire of men of different physical and psychic characteristics, working not only anatomy but also layout, composition and approaches. And beyond the physical aspect, Lozano Sidro’s men show different moods. In the work of Lozano Sidro we find the gallant, the country man, the young and the senior. There is room for the man dressed and styled in fashion and for the soldier, and the peasant, with refined or rude features. The figures appear in solemn and dignified situations as well as in popular scenes, in conversations or meditative. They are real men, in whom we could find portrayed the artist himself or people known to him.
La sala Museo ABC [ABC Museum Room]
At the Museo Lozano Sidro in Priego de Córdoba you can visit the so-called ABC Museum Room. A space permanently dedicated to the exhibition of some selections of the Colección ABC ―since it holds more than 600 works of art of the Cordovan master as a legacy of his collaboration with the Spanish newspaper ABC and Blanco y Negro magazine from 1896 to 1935. Therefore, annual exhibitions are organized in the house that once was his home and studio: Museo Lozano Sidro.
