Hazañas bélicas
1972
On loan
In the early seventies, like other Spanish painters of the time, Alberto Solsona combined elements taken from comics and mass culture as a means of political critique. He created works that repeatedly juxtaposed symbols with military or religious images, as a way of denouncing the repressive nature of the last years of Franco’s Spain. From 1972 to 1977, the social and political elements in Solsona’s work became more accentuated and explicit, and he began signing his paintings jointly with Fernando Almela. Their games of image association – such as a brain next to military images or soldiers embroidered in cross-stitch – evoke the irrationality and perversion of that particular political moment.
