Manuel de Gracia (Mora, Toledo, 1937 - 2017) started his career in Madrid practicing in the Círculo de Bellas Artes workshops and he held his first solo exhibition in 1963 in the Sala Toisón, together with Manuel Cano and José Suarez. Later he exhibited individually at the Eureka gallery and after that he showed his work in Valladolid and Santander.

In 1973 he was awarded with the first Premio Nacional “Pintores de África” and he received a grant to travel to the Sahara, where he lived and painted the works he exhibited in November at the Dirección General del Sáhara. There followed exhibitions at the Bay-Sala gallery (Bilbao), at the Eureka gallery and in the Cano Salon in Madrid.

After a long journey through the Netherlands, Belgium and France, he let himself be conquered by impressionism, which the painter cultivates with special talent.

He has been holding national exhibitions from Madrid and Bilbao to San Sebastián, Castellón, Valladolid or Valencia and international ones in the United States, Switzerland, France, Austria, Malta, etc. He is present in hundreds of collective and individual exhibitions and also in art fairs.

His work, mainly dedicated to landscape, achieves a serene beauty, behind which a deep technical mastery and exquisite sensitivity hide.

Note: The work will not be sent to Taiwan because it contains wood.
