Color saturated canvases with images of ripe, sumptuous feasts and languid summer rooms dressed with nudes lost in reverie. Who is Manel Anoro, and how did he become such a successful painter since beginning his career only fifteen years ago at the age of thirty-five? How are such shimmering pleasurable paintings produced by a man who spent thirty years in the leaden shadow of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco? A boy who grew up in a poor, drab barrio of Barcelona? A young man who spent more than a decade in a sterile office rather than living his dream of becoming a painter? Manel Anoro Los Colores del Mediterraneo attempts to answer these questions as it probes the making of an artist tapped into the creatively fertile mines of northeastern Spain known as Catalunya. Anoro's birthplace and his soul mate. Comparing the history of the region with the events of the painter's life which began in the center of the twentieth century.
