Portrait of an adolescent youth.
José Luis, 2005.
Oil on wood
100 x 75 cm
Grandson of the deceased Portuense poet, José Luis Tejada Peluffo (El Puerto de Santa María 1927- Cádiz 1988).
Seated at the entry way to the balcony of what was his grandfather’s office, the boy holds in his hands an open book of his grandfather’s poems with his picture on the cover.
A powerful personality is seen in the depths of his gaze; perhaps predicting a continued and fruitful line of succession in Andalusian literature.
