Antonio López and realism

Madrid from Torres Blancas
(between 1976 and 1982)

Don't you just love Antonio López?

After this painting was sold by Christie's last Monday in London for 1,7 million € (highest price paid in the market for the work of a Spanish living painter) Mr. López said to the press (right after "Just one moment, my hands are dirty"):

"What really matters is that once the work becomes all that is left, there will be dignity in it"
