Julio Moisés Fernández de Villasante spent his childhood and adolescence in Galicia and Cádiz, the city where the School of Fine Arts began his painting studies. There he won several awards and received commissions such as decorating his Gran Teatro. In 1912 he moved to Barcelona and in his first participation in a National Exhibition of Fine Arts he obtained a third medal. He repeated with a second and a first award in the 1915 and 1920 editions. He was also awarded at the San Francisco (1915) and Panama (1916) International Expositions. His work would continue to be exhibited throughout his life, such as the various individual exhibitions that took him to Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina in the 1930s. Installed in Madrid since 1920, he taught for several years after founding a Free Academy of Art in 1923. Students like Salvador Dalí passed through there, while he was requested by the Royal House to portray HM King D. Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia. The theme of his work was, above all, gender painting and female portraiture, a mixture of costumbrismo and folklore in equal parts. This was the "Woman with a bottle in her hand" that she signed in 1945 to illustrate the UEE calendar and with which, following the iconographic tradition of the collection, she contributed her own vision of the ideal canons of feminine beauty. His talent was recognized with the appointment as director of the School of Fine Arts in 1946 and that of an academic at the San Fernando School in Madrid in 1947.
