Thursday 23, September marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Gibraltarian artist Gustavo Bacarisas. Born in 1872 this new GBC programme ‘Gustavo Bacarisas: Ahead of his time’ celebrates Gibraltar’s most notable international artist and his large volume of work.
Living in Seville for most of his life the programme visits the Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla in the city. It brings together a number of local artists including Christian Hook, Paul Cosquieri and Gino Sanguinetti, all inspired by his work. Personalities who knew him like John Langdon, and those who helped acquire many of the paintings now part of the Gibraltar Art Collection. The programme is produced by Lizanne Figueras and Alice Mascarenhas who also presents.
