Artist's Description

Reading the poems of the Spanish dramatist and poet, Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) is fuel for the spirit and soul. He was a talented artist and a member of the "Generation of “1927”, a group of writers who advocated avant-gardism in literature. During this period his friends included the writers Juan Ramon Jimenez and Pablo Neruda. He also worked with Salvador Dali and Louis Bunuel in different productions. The central themes in his work are love, pride, and violent death, which also marked his own life. His life ended tragically during the Spanish Civil War. He hid from soldiers
who perceived him as an enemy and was shot and died on August 1920 without trial. The circumstances of his death are still shroud in mystery. Frederico Lorca was a brilliant
poet who also achieved a degree in law, but
the turning point in his literary career was folk music where he found inspiration for his
work from the traditions of folk and
gypsy music. Like his contemporary Pablo Neruda, his work is rich in metaphors and passion. Pairing this beautiful tree with vibrant colors captures the essence and
soul of this extraordinary Latin artist.

“Never let me lose the marvel
of your statue-like eyes, or the accent
the solitary rose of your breath
places on my cheek at night.

I am afraid of being, on this shore,
a branchless trunk, and what I most regret
is having no flower, pulp, or clay
for the worm of my despair.

If you are my hidden treasure,
if you are my cross, my dampened pain,
if I am a dog, and you alone my master,

never let me lose what I have gained,
and adorn the branches of your river
with leaves of my estranged Autumn."

Poem: Leaves of estranged Autumn
Federico Garcia Lorca
