Until February 18, "Temps de Guerra (1936-1939)" exposure that retrieves the artistic legacy of Tomás Ferrándiz, thanks to the work carried out by the José de la Mano Gallery can be viewed in the Museum of the University of Alicante.
Tomás Ferrándiz undertook its artistic worked with the Republican cause, being selected from two of his works for the mythical Republic Pavilion at the Paris International exhibition of 1937. There they were exposed together with Pablo Picasso's Guernica and other works of Joan Miró, Alberto Sánchez, Alexander Calder and Julio González.
Temps de Guerra shows how the Civil War leaves a clear trail in the work of Ferrandiz, which highlights his speech war, full of lyrical bursts combined with study and representation of the female figure in an attitude of struggle. Ferrandiz uses a wide variety of artistic resources, a wide range of techniques that part from the drawing, passing through lithography, engraving, painting and sculpture. Like other artists of his time, Tomàs Ferrándiz was forgotten at the end of the war until a restless gallery owner, José de la Mano, could access a study that compiled a series of the artist's work, which allowed him to recover them.
