Gonzalo Bilbao Martínez Sold at Auction Prices

Painter

Gonzalo Bilbao Martínez (27 May 1860 –Seville 4 December, 1938) was a Spanish costumbrista painter and art professor.

He was born in Seville, the son of a well-to-do lawyer and the older brother of the sculptor, Joaquín Bilbao. With the encouragement of José Jiménez Aranda, he began drawing lessons at an early age. At his father's insistence, he studied law along with his art lessons.[1]

In 1880, he completed his law degree, but never entered into practice; continuing his art lessons and devoting himself exclusively to painting.[2] As it turned out, his father was pleased with the results and paid his expenses for travelling to France and Italy with Aranda. He remained in Italy for three years, establishing himself in Rome; travelling frequently to Naples and Venice, where he painted both urban and rural scenes.

He returned to Spain in 1884. His restless temperament made it difficult for him to become accustomed to life in Seville, so he moved constantly, painting landscapes and wasted little time planning new trips; visiting Algeria and Morocco.[2] From there, it was back to Paris, where he sold his Moroccan paintings. His travels continued throughout Europe and America.

In 1893, he was appointed a member of the Academia de Bellas Artes and, in 1901, became President of the Athenaeum. In 1903, he succeeded Aranda as a Professor at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de Santa Isabel de Hungría, where his students included Daniel Vázquez Díaz and Eugenio Hermoso. In 1904, he married the daughter of a French banker.[2]

He is perhaps best known for a series of sketches and paintings depicting "cigarreras" (cigar makers), made during the 1910s at the Royal Tobacco Factory. During his later years, he received numerous awards, including the Order of Isabella the Catholic and the Order of Carlos III.[2]

In 1935, he was elected a member of the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando and moved to Madrid.[2] He died in Madrid, aged 78, during the Spanish Civil War, while the city was under siege. After the war, his widow donated his remaining works to the Museo de Bellas Artes.[

          GONZALO BILBAO MARTÍNEZ (Seville, 1860 - Madrid, 1938). "The Lady and the Shawl". Oil on canvas. Attached certificate of authenticity issued by Don Gerardo Pérez Calero.

          Est: €5,000 - €6,000

          GONZALO BILBAO MARTÍNEZ (Seville, 1860 - Madrid, 1938). "The Lady and the Shawl". Oil on canvas. Attached certificate of authenticity issued by Don Gerardo Pérez Calero. The frame has slight damage at the corners. Signed in the lower left corner. Measurements: 170 x 101 cm; 188 x 122 cm (frame). Gonzalo Bilbao has carried out in this occasion a portrait of an unidentified lady, full body, placed frontally and dressed with a wide manila shawl that covers her completely and looks with grace. She is leaning with her right arm on a tall flowerpot with a vase of flowers, while she is holding flowers on her head with a matching comb, necklace and earrings. She holds a fan in her right hand, while her opposite hand, which holds a wedding ring on her ring finger, is placed in a jar. The artist became one of the most renowned artists of his time and enjoyed a privileged social position, both in Seville and, above all, in Madrid, in the courtly circle of the Alphonsines and the upper middle classes. He thus became the favourite portraitist of the ladies and young ladies of distinguished society, as well as of artists, writers and politicians. The present work forms part of the list of ladies portrayed with panache by the Sevillian artist. His aesthetic evolution, which he maintained throughout his long career as a multifaceted artist, led him along the different paths of the last quarter of the 19th century and the first third of the next. This anonymous portrait, which is characterised by the use of a modern technique with a loose palette and artificial colours in line with a kind of neo-Impressionism with Fauvist touches, fits in chronologically with the latter. Gonzalo Bilbao took up drawing as a child and in 1880 he began his career as a painter. Around this time he travelled to Italy and France with Jiménez de Aranda. In Rome he worked with the painter José Villegas Cordero and travelled around the various Italian capitals, painting urban and rural views until his return to Spain in 1884. In the following years he visited Rome again, travelled around Spain and also went to Morocco, Paris and Munich. In Spain he taught painting, initially as a private tutor and, from 1903, as Jiménez de Aranda's successor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Santa Isabel de Hungría in Seville. In 1904 he married and took up residence in Madrid, where he continued his teaching work at the San Fernando Academy. During his career he took part in numerous fine arts exhibitions, both national and foreign, being awarded a third medal at the Universal Exhibition of Paris (1889) and the International Exhibition of Barcelona (1891), a single medal at the Universal Exhibition of Chicago (1893), and a gold medal at the International Exhibitions of Berlin (1899), Munich (1905), Buenos Aires (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), San Francisco (1915) and Panama (1916). He also took part in the National Fine Arts Nationals, winning second medals in 1887 and 1892, first in 1899 and 1901 and an honourable medal in 1915. A traditional painter, representative of Spanish genre painting, his pictures were colourful depictions of Andalusian life and its most popular figures, and he also painted landscapes, figures and portraits, depicting prominent figures of the time such as King Alfonso XIII and the actress Carmen Díaz. The light and vitality of his compositions bring his language closer to the Impressionist aesthetic, focusing on the essential representation of atmospheres and landscapes. Gonzalo Bilbao is represented in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Seville, where he has a room devoted entirely to his work, the Museo del Prado, the Museo Jaume Morera in Lleida and the Museo de Bellas Artes in Cordoba, among others, as well as in private collections both in Spain and abroad.

He also took part in the National Fine Arts Nationals, winning second medals in 1887 and 1892, first in 1899 and 1901 and an honourable medal in 1915. A traditional painter, representative of Spanish genre painting, his pictures were colourful depictions of Andalusian life and its most popular figures, and he also painted landscapes, figures and portraits, depicting prominent figures of the time such as King Alfonso XIII and the actress Carmen Díaz. The light and vitality of his compositions bring his language closer to the Impressionist aesthetic, focusing on the essential representation of atmospheres and landscapes. Gonzalo Bilbao is represented in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Seville, where he has a room devoted entirely to his work, the Museo del Prado, the Museo Jaume Morera in Lleida and the Museo de Bellas Artes in Cordoba, among others, as well as in private collections both in Spain and abroad.

The frame is damaged. Signed in the lower right corner. Measurements: 90 x 140 cm; 100 x 147 cm (frame). The landscape was one of the genres in which Gonzalo Bilbao cultivated the most, in such a way that his work reflects a wide variety that goes from maritime, fluvial and terrestrial views, adapting pictorially diverse locations that go from the Andalusian countryside to the city of Morocco. Sometimes they are populated by people, while at other times they are desolate, as in this painting. His mastery and intense landscape activity involved a great mastery of technique, and he was a master at capturing light and atmosphere. This work is a clear example of this, as the artist captures a specific moment of the day, placing a slight orange stripe in the centre of the horizon line, indicating that it is sunset, which can also be guessed through the darkened treatment of the architectural element in the scene. Gonzalo Bilbao took up drawing as a child and in 1880 he began his career as a painter. Around this time he travelled to Italy and France with Jiménez de Aranda. In Rome he worked with the painter José Villegas Cordero, and travelled around the various Italian capitals, painting urban and rural views until his return to Spain in 1884.

          El último recurso

          Est: -

          Firmado y fechado en el ángulo inferior derecho: "G. Bilbao / Sevilla 96". Gonzalo Bilbao sitúa la escena de la obra que nos ocupa en una casa de empeños, sórdido lugar a donde tenían que acudir las personas más pobres como último recurso para sobrevivir. Constituye este tema una variante de la pintura de carácter social, que trataba de poner de relieve, a través de una denuncia moral, las grandes diferencias que aquejaban a un mundo plagado de contradicciones. El Monte de Piedad, de tradición anterior a las casas de empeños, alcanzó gran desarrollo entonces. Esta institución estaba destinada a proporcionar un préstamo a los desvalidos, sin aplicar unos intereses abusivos. De todos modos, la gran angustia que generaba en las familias necesitadas la idea de renunciar o llegar a perder lo poco que poseían para alimentarse constituyó un drama humano que fue recreado literaria y plásticamente en distintas ocasiones. Muchas veces, la idea de llegar a reunir algo de valor que pudiese servir para conseguir algunas monedas o la tensa espera hasta saber cuánto dinero se podía conseguir con ello se convirtió en nudo argumental emotivo de pinturas y novelas. Gonzalo Bilbao había abordado el problema en un cuadro que alcanzó gran resonancia internacional. Esta pintura hace una interpretación dura del asunto. Se trata de la sala de espera de una casa de empeños, o de un monte de Piedad, a uno de cuyos lados se sientan dos mujeres, una pobre joven con un hatillo sobre las piernas, y otra, anciana con un bebe en brazos, a la derecha, que parecen aguardar ante la puerta junto a la que se agolpan algunas personas. La expresión pensativa y cabizbaja de la joven en primer plano sirve para dirigir la atención sobre el drama humano. El pintor se muestra, en este caso, conocedor de elementos expresivos de carácter formal más modernos, que contribuyen poderosamente a crear un atmósfera de desolación, a través de algunos recursos abstractos y no siempre literarios: la incidencia en la miseria del lugar, que parece una prolongación de sus propias almas; la opresión del encuadre, metáfora de la angustia que viven; la desconexión de las figuras, prolongación de su propio aislamiento; y, sobre todo, el vacío espacial producido por la generosa representación de la superficie del suelo frente al arrinconamiento de las mujeres, que no son nada en medio de la nada (Texto extractado de Reyero, C.: “El último recurso”, Ternura y Melodrama. Pintura de escenas familiares en tiempos de Sorolla, Consellería de Educación y Cultura, 2003, p. 332). Obra a comparar con el óleo sobre lienzo de 112 x 175 cm de la misma temática realizado unos años antes, en 1901, por Gonzalo Bilbao que pertenece al Museo del Prado depositado en otra institución.

Measurements: 44 x 30 cm; 63 x 48 cm (frame). In this composition of vertical format, the author collects a view of the mythical city of Venice, avoiding the presentation of the canal. The image takes in the infinite chromatic nuances that are conjugated in the vibrant surface of the buildings. Where the reflections of the old stately houses and the shadows coincide, while it dialogues with a clear sky. Venetian views were one of the most popular themes in 19th-century painting. It shows a clear influence of approaches that emerged thanks to outstanding pictorial avant-gardes such as Impressionism, and a certain reminiscence of Spanish Luminism.

Encouraged by José Jiménez Aranda, Gonzalo Bilbao started drawing as a child. At his father's request he began to study law, which he alternated with artistic training. After graduating in law in 1880, he devoted himself exclusively to painting. He travelled with Jiménez Aranda to Italy and France, and in Paris he visited museums, galleries and the studios of French artists. He remained in Italy for three years, living in Rome, where he worked with the painter José Villegas Cordero. He returned to Spain in 1884 and travelled around the country in search of new landscapes to paint, as well as alternating stays in Morocco, Paris and Munich. From 1903 he taught at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Santa Isabel de Hungría in Seville, where his pupils included Vázquez Díaz and Eugenio Hermoso, among others. He won numerous medals in both national and international competitions, including the sole medal at the Universal Exhibition in Chicago (1893), the first medals at the National Fine Arts Exhibition (1899, 1901; of honour in 1915), the gold medal at the Berlin International (1899), and the first medals at the International Exhibitions in Buenos Aires (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), San Francisco (1915) and Panama (1916). The bulk of Gonzalo Bilbao's work is currently housed in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Seville.

During the 19th century the city of Venice acquired a great popularity, as a paradise in which the classical culture and the splendour of the baroque coexisted with a certain orientalist atmosphere. The development of the tramway facilitated communication between countries, allowing many families to travel abroad, in fact, it was during the late 18th and early 19th centuries that the Grand Tour was at its most splendid. Theorists such as Ruskin visited the city, praising it, and many artists settled in the city of canals, such as Fortuny. Gonzalo Bilbao took up drawing as a child and in 1880 he began his career as a painter. During these years he travelled to Italy and France with Jiménez de Aranda. In Rome he worked with the painter José Villegas Cordero, and travelled around the various Italian capitals, painting urban and rural views until his return to Spain in 1884.

During his career he took part in numerous fine arts exhibitions, both national and foreign, being awarded a third medal at the Universal Exhibition of Paris (1889) and the International Exhibition of Barcelona (1891), a single medal at the Universal Exhibition of Chicago (1893), and a gold medal at the International Exhibitions of Berlin (1899), Munich (1905), Buenos Aires (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), San Francisco (1915) and Panama (1916). He also took part in the National Fine Arts Nationals, winning second medals in 1887 and 1892, first in 1899 and 1901 and an honourable medal in 1915. A traditional painter, representative of Spanish genre painting, his pictures were colourful depictions of Andalusian life and its most popular figures, and he also painted landscapes, figures and portraits, depicting prominent figures of the time such as King Alfonso XIII and the actress Carmen Díaz. The light and vitality of his compositions bring his language closer to the Impressionist aesthetic, focusing on the essential representation of atmospheres and landscapes. Gonzalo Bilbao is represented in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Seville, where he has a room devoted entirely to his work, the Museo del Prado, the Museo Jaume Morera in Lleida and the Museo de Bellas Artes in Cordoba, among others, as well as in private collections both in Spain and abroad.

The frame is damaged. Signed in the lower right corner. Measurements: 90 x 140 cm; 100 x 147 cm (frame). The landscape was one of the genres in which Gonzalo Bilbao cultivated the most, in such a way that his work reflects a wide variety that goes from maritime, fluvial and terrestrial views, adapting pictorially diverse locations that go from the Andalusian countryside to the city of Morocco. Sometimes they are populated by people, while at other times they are desolate, as in this painting. His mastery and intense landscape activity involved a great mastery of technique, and he was a master at capturing light and atmosphere. This work is a clear example of this, as the artist captures a specific moment of the day, placing a slight orange stripe in the centre of the horizon line, indicating that it is sunset, which can also be guessed through the darkened treatment of the architectural element in the scene. Gonzalo Bilbao took up drawing as a child and in 1880 he began his career as a painter. Around this time he travelled to Italy and France with Jiménez de Aranda. In Rome he worked with the painter José Villegas Cordero, and travelled around the various Italian capitals, painting urban and rural views until his return to Spain in 1884.
