Still life with fruit bowl. Oil on canvas. GARCÍA LESMES, Aurelio (Valladolid, Spain, 1884-Mexico City, Mexico, 1942). Signed towards the lower right corner and on the back. Aurelio García Lesmes was a Spanish painter who began his training in Valladolid and, thanks to a pension from the Provincial Council, continued it at the San Fernando Academy in Madrid, a city where he became more widely known at National Fine Arts Exhibitions. (He achieved a Third Medal in 1917; Second in 1922 and First in 1926). He met Valle-Inclán, Ricardo Baroja, Darío de Regoyos, etc., in the capital, and he alternated his stay here with long periods in Valladolid, where he worked on his well-known canvases of Castilian fields. Over time, he established himself as one of the most prestigious Spanish landscape painters of his time and established his workshop in Valladolid. After the Civil War he went into exile in Mexico. His work can be seen in prominent institutions such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), the Museo Patio Herreriano (Valladolid), etc.
