From your cape

Bullfighting is art, a matter of inspirations, passions, and pauses in time.


From your cape, 2001.

Oil on wood

100 x 81 cm




From among the rock rose plants to the green olive grove, winding through the Aljarafian horizon, sings a pervasive warm air.

Like a guiding angel, a woman wrapped in a bullfighter’s cape with a floral design, embroidered by the legendary Manfredi for the magnificent bullfighter, Curro Romero. “Pharoah” is the focal point of this work.  

She holds the cape that covers her with both hands, the left hand on her waist and the right placed on her heart.

The unmistakable Espartinas site in the background, as seen from the small bullring at El Vizir Hacienda. A place for regular training in the art of bullfighting.
