The Isidro Parra Foundation is constituted from the express wish of the artist Isidro Parra with all his legacy: paintings, engravings, sculptures, graphic and editorial projects, reliefs, objects, collages, artist’s books… a work whose richness and originality covers a long creative career from the drawings and watercolors of his youth to the series of the latest large format paintings.
The Foundation’s main purpose is the protection and study of Isidro Parra’s complete works. For this institution it is an exciting commitment to contribute to the patrimonial, cultural and social wealth of Alcázar de San Juan, as Isidro Parra wanted, and it is also created as a space for dissemination, cultural activity and a center to stimulate new generations of artists.Show more content
The Foundation wants to make its main commitment to the education of artistic sensitivity and is developing a program of educational cycles and workshops focused especially on children and in collaboration with schools. Isidro Parra possessed three qualities that are the conceptual basis of this project: the passion to create, a brilliant and spontaneous sense of humor and an intimate knowledge of everything that 20th century art has contributed to teach us to “look more and look better”. Research and publishing activities complete this project.
The Foundation is currently organizing a program of guided tours to get to know the workshop space and a selection of works from the collection that illustrate the essence of the artist’s artistic career, highlighting his activity in the field of engraving and printing, disciplines developed by Isidro Parra using the most varied techniques.
