Agudo to become a member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Cadiz

Antonio Agudo has been selected to become part of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Cadiz. The investiture will take place on the 22nd of June. A fellow painter, the president of the Prado Museum’s Royal Board and an art historian have also been selected as new members.

Agudo has had a long artistic and personal relationship with the city of Cadiz. During his childhood, his family moved to Cadiz from Seville for two years while his father was the director of the graphics department for the newspaper Diario de Cadiz. Since then, Agudo has featured the city and coastal villages and landscapes in different collections during his career.

His last exhibition in Cadiz was last summer in the historic Castle of Santa Catalina. Below are some photos of the painter at the exhibition.
