Antoni Pomar - Part Ten: Charcoal Drawings
 

This is our tenth and final week that we are presenting the lifetime’s work of the celebrated and outstanding Ibicencan artist, Antoni Pomar, who has incessantly for over fifty years been painting his continuous journal of the people and the scenery of our unique island of Ibiza.

The Antoni Pomar colourful series began in our fortnightly “Artists on Ibiza” (Fifteen) which was put together by José P Ribas and me. In that publication we showed a selection of personal photographs of the Pomar family from him being an infant in 1930 and his friends and colleagues up to 1992. In that same edition we also included five earlier oil paintings of Pomar’s from 1940 to 1951. 

Today we bring to a close this series by showing a selection of Pomar’s charcoal drawings that Antoni made between the years of 1953 to 1998. This will mean that we have now shown 78 colour paintings and with these 12 charcoal drawings bring us to a grand total of 90 pieces of exceptional works of art which have been painted and drawn over a fifty-year period by Antoni Pomar.

These and all the paintings that we have been very pleased to be able show over this ten-weekly series have been 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.
