La Sandía by Jerónimo López. medium: oil on canvas. date: unknown. dimensions: 39.4 x 31.5 inches

Jerónimo López’s work, whether describing landscapes and still life realistically or portraits of uninhibited “Bodegones” idealistically, is strongly influenced by the spirit of his picturesque native region, which he obviously loves and wants to communicate to the public through a very identifiable personal style. His relentless activity, his optimistic perseverance, his constant efforts to improve as well as his exquisite sensitivity and an acute sense of observation of physical and human nature are sure signs of future recognition.

After Mr. Jeronimo’s recent gratifying exhibits in southern Spain, the noted Spanish poet/art critic Alvaro Morales praised Mr. Jeronimo’s and his works highly, referring in particular to his natural ability to draw faultlessly, a condition sine qua non for a young painter to succeed. He also noticed the fact that the importance that this painter gives to color manifests itself with utmost clarity and purity in each and every one of his works. Says Mr. Morales: “This Mexican painter lives his paintings intensely and passionately; his full commitment and concentration make him an omniscient creator whose descriptions come alive and impress through the intelligent and strongly individualistic use of color.
