History of Ibiza by Emily Kaufman >>

Antoni Pomar - Part Nine (1994-1995)

This is the ninth week we’re showing the lifetime’s work of the renowned and exceptional Ibicencan artist, Antoni Pomar, who has continuously for over a fifty-year period been painting the sea, people and landscape scenery of the island of Ibiza.

We began this colourful series in the “Artists on Ibiza” (Fifteen) by showing a selection of personal photographs of Antonio Pomar, his family and friends from 1930 and in that same edition we also published five earlier paintings of Antonio Pomar from between the years of 1940 to 1951. 

Today we will conclude with the paintings by presenting the final eight of Pomar’s colour works of art which he painted between the year 1994-1995 and this will give us a total of 78 colour paintings that we’ve shown over this nine-week sequence.

If you look carefully through these magnificent painting we’ve shown of Antoni Pomar’s lifetime of work, you’ll notice it’s a fifty-year-old painting chronicle from 1940 up to present day of the sea, people, the scenery of the landscape and the everyday way of life here on Ibiza.

However, before finishing with the saga of Antoni Pomar, we still have a selection of charcoal drawings to show that Pomar did during forty-five years of his career between 1953 and 1998, which we will publish for you to see over the next couple of weeks.

These and all the additional paintings that have been shown over this nine-weekly series will be added to the initial article that was written in the Artist on Ibiza (Fifteen) by José P Ribas in Weekly Edition 063 and published on Saturday 11th May 2002.
