From the blurb: "Jorge Castillo is an important contemporary Spanish artist whose works have been internationally acclaimed....In this volume, noted art critic Carter Ratcliff explores not only the work of a prolific and exciting anist, but also his elusive process of art making. Probing the very intimate solutions of Castillo's art, Ratcliff looks at his work in the larger context of nineteenth and twentieth Century art history, where and when he was influenced by the Orientalist, Cubist, and Surrealist movements. Castiilo's subject matter encompasses the realm of the narrative using motifs such as the human figure, animals and plants to popúlate his rich oeuvre. In writing about Castillo as the consummate "diarist, " this special volume reveals to us the man, the artist and his work."
