Francisco Núñez de Celis

[Spain] (b 1919/ d 1996)

A Rare photograph of Francisco and his Father Núñez Losada, both Great Landscape painters of the XX Century...

"Trained at the San Fernando Royal Academy in Madrid, where he was later a tenured professor, he was the son and disciple of the landscape artist Núñez Losada, who helped nurture his fondness for mountains and for the art of painting. His creative production was also linked to this theme, as can be seen in Hotel El Oso, in the Cantabrian area of Picos de Europa, decorated with a complete and representative collection of the artist’s oil paintings. 
His passion for the Cantabrian mountains took him to live in Liébana, where his house was known as the “Painter’s Chalet“, and to refurbish a peasant worker’s house in the village of Mogrovejo. The surroundings of this area would be almost an obsession in his work, as Mont Sainte-Victoire in Provence was for Cézanne.
The accolades he received during his career include a third prize at the National Fine Arts Exhibition in 1954 and an award from the Provincial Assembly in Toledo at the 1960 exhibition. His work was shown in nineteen separate occasions, between 1949 and 1978, at the famous Salón Cano in Madrid. "
