Julio Romero de Torres: flamenco dream

What follows is a flamenco tribute to the painter Julio Romero de Torres, the artist who once declared that if he had had to chose whether to be "the great figure of Leonardo da Vinci – for whom I feel such admiration that I consider him the leading painter of all times – or Juan Breva, I would not have hesitated. I would have been Juan Breva, in other words, the finest flamenco singer of all times." This programme is thus a celebration of the artist’s profound love of flamenco, which he translated onto his canvases on numerous occasions. For the King of malagueñas whom he worshipped, for his muse Pastora Imperio, and for so many others who posed for this great artist, including la Trini and her daughter, the dancer Anita Delgado, la Niña de los Peines and the endless roll-call of women who acquired the curves of a guitar through the dance of his brush. From along the routes of abandolaos that crossed neighbouring provinces such as Cordoba and Malaga comes this banquet of flamenco in honour of the magic of his work.
