Oil on canvas - Hand signed - XX

During his studies, he always stood out for his great talent for drawing and painting. His teachers, amazed at his skill, urged his father to make the boy study Fine Arts. However, above all, his wish was to be a military; but his father decided that he joined the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes of San Carlos, in Valencia, where he did all his studies. His academic record was one of the most brilliant that the Fine Arts School had. At the age of 16, he obtained a golden medal and extraordinary prizes in all the subjects. Wen he was 17, in the famous 1909 Regional Exhibition of Valencia -for which the brilliant Himno a la Exposición (which today is the anthem of the Comunidad Valenciana) was composed by master Serrano, with lyrics by Maximiliano Thous- he obtained a golden medal and another one in bronze, in competition with great masters of painting. He finished his studies at the age of 18.
