Of all the artists inspired by the improbable beauty of Cuenca, Antonio Saura (1930–98) had the most personal connection to the city. He had tuberculosis as a teenager and began coming to Cuenca for his health at age 18. He became fascinated by the view from his sickbed window and it became seminal in his artistic vocabulary. This foundation was established 10 years after the death of this master Abstract Expressionist painter. It displays his work as well as that of his contemporaries, including other members of El Grupo Paso, which Saura helped found. In a late interview, Saura noted that all his life, without realizing it, he had been painting “the hypnotic mask between the rocks—the blackberry eyes. The curve of the mountain looks like the mound where the head of Goya’s dog emerges.”
