Works by Manuel Alcorlo
Manuel Alcorlo is an academic of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando. He carried out his artistic studies in the School of Arts and Crafts, in the School of Ceramics of the Moncloa and the School of Fine Arts of San Fernando. Alcorlo has behind him a long career in which he has developed an oniric painting that critics have considered as ‘surrealising’. A style that highlights his sense of humour and a marked irony, as well as an outstanding social commitment when dealing with everyday issues. He illustrated with lithography texts by Cervantes, Columela, Quevedo, Apuleyo, Juan Ramón Jiménez and Neruda. A well-known admirer of ancient and modern masters such as Rembrandt, Durero, Goya or Picasso, he has received many awards such as the Mapfre Drawing Award in 1983. His work can be seen in private collections of all types of institutions or museums such as the Modern Art Museum of Cairo.
