Chilean-born (1936) Claudio Bravo, a pioneer of the realist revival in the 1970s, had his first success as a society painter in Franco's Spain. He was able to do flattering, detailed portraits at a rapid pace. His paintings of paper-wrapped packages, perfectly rendered in a photorealist style, were very popular as well. His paintings of young man and athletes, however, stood out as his most heartfelt works. Bravo was successful enough to buy a 19th-century villa in Tangier, Morocco, where he spent most of his life. In Tangier he painted primarily male models — workers in the house, their friends, the telephone repairman. “Islamic women will not pose for me,” he once explained. “That is one of the reasons why I recently bought apartments in Madrid and New York — to expand the range of types that I paint.” The artist died at his home in Taroudant, Morocco, June 4, 2011.
