Spanish artist, Ortega (1921-1990) was an intimate friend of Pablo Picasso. He was the narrator of the rural world and, dedicating his work to the working class, he has explored the historic processes of the fight for freedom. During the second postwar period, Ortega became a role model in graphic illustrations, next to his master Friedlander, Mirò, and Picasso. Salvador Dalì, in fact, used to create his graphic works in the Ortega’s Parisian studio.
