Lita Cabellut - Blood Wedding

Novelty Artist Book

Lita Cabellut
Considered to be one of the world’s
most acclaimed and valued
contemporary Spanish artist. Since
the very beginning, her work has
been influenced by the great Dutch
masters, namely Rembrandt, but also by
Velázquez, Goya and Bacon.

Defined as the portraitist of souls,
Cabellut is a creative genius, a
multidisciplinary artist who works
with various artistic supports and
expresses herself through a wide
range of disciplines such as sculpture,
photography, poetry, visual poems,
theatrical staging and videos.

Her art is defined by her portraits and
her craquelure techniques, which
exudes violence and cruelty, energy
and beauty, passion and desire. Art
in constant evolution, which, with her
innovative Face/Trace compositions, she
unveils the characters and their souls, a
personal style in which the rollers used
to create her graphic work are the true
protagonists.
The Work
Blood Wedding has brought together two timeless geniuses in a creative process lasting for four years, in which Lita Cabellut
has created 90 works ex professo for this edition. The artist has been inspired by the original tragedy to portray not only the
characters, but also their souls, through her personal painting technique of rollers.

The work combines Lorca’s drama with the expressive power of Cabellut herself; an artist book in an exclusive edition limited to
1,998 copies, all signed by the Spanish painter.

The Art Book includes the text of the tragedy Blood Wedding and
the 31 prints especially chosen by the artist.

The Study Book sets out Cabellut’s artistic career and her ties
to Lorca. Also including an in-depth analysis of the 90 works that
make up the complete series of Blood Wedding.

The case recreates the Face and Trace of the drawing The Moon (La luna).        Portrait and soul, two visions of the same image;
two works by Lita Cabellut which upon closing transform into a spectacular carrying case that houses the Art Book within.
