Rafael Cano García (Toledo, 1935) is one of the most representative artists of Spanish art in the second half of the 20th century. He lived for a large part of his childhood in San Sebastián, until his transfer to Madrid in 1944 with his family. It is in 1948 when he began his training with Daniel Vázquez Díaz in his workshop, and he trained as a complement in the Circle of Fine Arts. During this moment he paints landscapes and portraits and studies the work of Braque, Picasso, and Miró. In his first works, he found a way to reach the avant-garde and, very soon, to deeply study abstraction.
