Publication

Publication of the exhibition

Those young people of San Sebastián faced numerous difficulties in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century if they were determined to develop their artistic vocation. Having begun their studies with a private teacher or at the local School of Arts and Crafts, they immediately encountered problems if they wished to follow a more in-depth training programme. Those intending to continue their training in Madrid or abroad faced the obstacle of financing. For this reason, at the end of the 19th century, the City Council of San Sebastián managed to come up with an alternative by creating a system of grants so that those who did not have the means to do so were still able to study Fine Arts. In this way, during a first period that lasted for four decades, thirteen artists were able to enter diverse academic centres.

Accesibility

People with restricted vision will be able to download to their mobile phones specially adapted texts from the hall so that they can thus enjoy the exhibition, thanks to the collaboration of Asociación Begiris.

Although this era coincided with a crucial period in Basque art, during which a gradual incorporation into modernity took place, the great majority of the recipients of these grants remained on the outside of the most reformist experiences. For various reasons, including the Spanish Civil War, many of them were unable to fully develop their careers.

This exhibition is the result of research carried out by Mikel Letrxundi Galiana. It gathers a selection of works by Francisco López Alén, Benito Martínez Sierra, Inocencia Arangoa, José Aguirre, Ángel Cabanas Oteiza, José Arangoa, Jenaro Echeverrivar, Edmundo Paillole, Venancio Ayerza, Jesús Martínez Utrilla, José Bengoechea and Luis Álvarez.
