Torrelavega (Cantabria), 1961 Emilio González Sainz recreates in his works the personalities of archetypes that form a part of the European culture of the last three hundred years. This culture is related to books and to the knowledge of nature, both as a part of work and the individual pleasure. He recreates the personalities of the collector in his cabinet of curiosities, the explorer of the deep north, the walker in the forest, the hunter with his greyhounds, the writer working in his cabin … González Sainz loves winter landscapes, bare rocks and frozen fields and, in this area of elective affinities is located his last production of marker drawings, where he writes the names of his favorite artists and writers forming swirls in the air. Patinir, Brueguel, Poe, Corot, Ucello, Melville, Mantegna, Pessoa, Bonnard, Dufy, Matisse, Morandi, Brancusi, Austen, Hopper, Stubss, Giacometti, Paul Klee, Highsmith look as if they are about to disappear.
