Jose Barbera Retrospective Exhibition
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : Jose Barbera Retrospective Exhibition
Please join us at Brilliance In Color on Friday, March 4th for our special First Friday Art Walk Exhibition.
Jose Barbera was one of the great Spanish landscape artists of the 21st century, born on October 1, 1945 in Valencia, Spain.
Barbera developed a love of art early in life and at the age of twelve he began his formal training. Barbera described himself
as a representational landscape painter. His favored subjects were the landscapes of Spain’s sunbathed beaches and ancient
mountain villages with their weathered white stucco and terra-cotta clay tile roofs and as an avid gardener he also loved to
paint beautiful rose bushes.
Barbera was without a doubt a painter with the ability to transmit the unique light of Spain into his works. When
an artist possesses such talent, technique and sensitivity, a truth emerges from his art in a manner that is natural and
simple...both fresh and spontaneous. Barbera’s unique paintings have captivated collectors the world over...from
Saudi royalty to Hollywood icons. Barbera has also been honored with several awards and many prominent exhibitions.
During the last three years of his life Barbera would travel through out Spain’s scenic countryside searching for new inspiration
in familiar places. He painted as much as he could, these were to be the last works Barbera would produce. The originals in this
special retrospective exhibition will be the last opportunity for many collectors to enjoy the unique paintings of Barbera.
