Antoni Clavé 1913 - 2005

AntoniAntoni Clavé, born 1913, was a Catalonian Spanish artist celebrated for his paintings, prints, sculptures and, more prominently, for his stage and costume designs. His work diversified hugely over the course of his life: initially baroque, ornamental and expressionistic, his later work was characterized by more restrained aesthetics and, in the latter third of his life, became completely abstract.

Clavé trained at Barcelona’s School of Fine Arts, citing Bonnard and Rouault as early sources of inspiration. In 1949 he designed the theatre set for Roland Petit’s production of Carmen and by 1952 had been nominated for two Academy Awards for his work on the film Hans Christian Andersen. His work is held internationally and in numerous collections across Spain.
