Demetrio Salgado, (1916–2000), was born in Salamanca. He moves to Madrid upon discovering his artistic vocation, settling in the traditional neighborhood of Lavapiés. He studied at the San Fernando High School in Madrid, where he shared classes and a close friendship with Pedro Mozos, Juan Alcalde and Juan Barjola, among others.

In 1955 he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, a period that marked him deeply. Back in Spain he opens his own workshop, where he mainly works as a poster artist until, in the late 1960s, he begins to reap the success of his painting. His prolific pictorial career he combined for years with his teaching work as Professor of Nudes in the Circle of Fine Arts in Madrid.

His work, deeply personal and intimate, has a sober and silent character. Stresses the use of light, discreetly breaking into the compositions, as well as the use of refined and subtle tones, resulting in complex compositions wrapped in an apparent calm.

His work is exhibited in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (Madrid), in the Pinacoteca of the Circle of Fine Arts (Madrid), in the Museum of Fine Arts of Linares (Jaén), among other institutions, as well as in numerous private collections. More on Demetrio Salgado

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
