Retratos en blanco y negro
A multitude of magazines and daily press from the 20th century made us experience the precision of photographs with the agile stroke of cartoonists. This led to the magnificent selection of cartoons presented in this collection which covers a period of our history (1939-1965), marked by many shortages, but also with lifesaving wit and humour. Cartoonists of that time, together with the critics and gossip columnists, formed a shared universe, in which the misery of many was mixed with the professional brilliance of not just a few. Some are well known (Fresno, Ugalde, Bon...) and others not so much, but they all attended premiere performances, and then exercised their art in nearby cafes concisely and with enviable speed.
Readers later become more eager than ever to receive news on performing arts. They may or may not have read the stage article, but they all looked at this flash of humour and intelligence provided by Cronos, Dávila, del Arco, Ramón or Asirio. It was their greatest triumph, knowing that by taking apart celebrities (Jardiel, Benavente, Celia Gámez, Rafael Rivelles, or Lola Flores), these were taken off their pedestal to be at the same level as enthusiasts.
