José Vives-Atsara (Spanish/American, 1919-2004)


Jose Vives-Atsara was born in Vilafranca del Panades in the Catalonian region of Spain and studied art at Saint Raymond College and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. He came to San Antonio in 1956 where he established his art career. Vives-Atsara's vibrant oil paintings have been described as both realistic and impressionistic. He used only nine colors, mixing his paints with incredible skill. Jose Vives-Atsara is represented in collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Spain, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The artist uses contrasting areas of light and shadow to create a dramatic chiaroscuro effect in these paintings. That is not surprising considering he trained in his native Spain where this style has a long tradition in the work of Spanish artists such as El Greco and Velazquez.
