Madrid 1952

The pictorial work of Juan Calonje characterises by its cubist geometries, simple, yet analytical, and gallant nature and full at the same time of infinite details. Those who knew him describe him as a "hypercritical dragon, who with patient curiosity learnt to melt his fidelity as well with the elegance of the licenses of office that characterised him." In his works he uses everyday themes, shaping objects, emotions and environments to the portrait, still life or landscape, making these deep visual meditations, managing to transmit a great fullness.
