Madrid: Travelling with Watercolour (ES)
This book is a collection spanning over 5 years of more than 80 watercolour paintings of the streets and gardens of Madrid, by the Madrilenian artist, Fernando Blasco.
These beautiful illustrations are accompanied by descriptive texts written by Pepo Paz, who, through a series of routes that began at Puerta del Sol, "ground zero" of any visit to Madrid, took a journey through the history and urban planning of this city in which he resides, and under his gaze, he unravels the evolution of its people, streets and squares, buildings, fountains, palaces and convents.
Fernando Blasco's watercolours are a journey towards the memory of Madrid. They discover a city of unsuspected perspectives full of exuberant architectures, hidden squares, evocative facades and monumental fountains. His watercolours sketch a city in constant transformation. Find Madrid in Madrid, from the oldest remains to the current city of the 21st century. A special and daring task.
It is a travel notebook full of watercolors and anecdotes. The book is divided into several chapters: Madrid de los Austrias, Barrio de las Letras and Lavapiés, Illustrated Madrid, De Cibeles to Moncloa, Manzanares and Casa de Campo, Modern Madrid, other neighborhoods ... etc.
