The exhibition hall Can Jeroni in San José presents a new exposure dedicated to two of the most important Ibicencan painters of contemporary art: Antoni Marí Ribas, Portmany and Vicent Calbet.
It is the second exhibition of the room dedicated to the Ramon Medina Collection, the first, in August of 2018, had a great public success, because it offered a panorama of artists of the island through works compiled by this great collector. In this second exhibition several paintings by Portmany and Calbet are presented, whose works abound in the Ramon Medina collection.
Antoni Marí Ribas, Portmany (1906-1974) was born in Ibiza, its nickname comes from the origin of his parents, from San Antonio. He was a disciple and a close friend of the painter Narcís Puget Viñas. His first big show was at the Ebusus Society, where he presented oil paintings of the island's landscapes. He was a bohemian artist who stood out for his drawings, which he made on paper with a piece of cane that he sharpened himself and ink, and which captured everyday scenes of the Ibizan life of that time. Today he is considered one of the most important Ibizan painters of the 20th century.
Vicent Calbet (Ibiza 1938 - Japan 1994) was a distant relative of Portmany and after studying at the School of Arts and Crafts of Ibiza he moved to Valencia to enter the School of Fine Arts, where he discovered Gothic painting. When he returns to the island he begins to exhibit. Obtains the national medal in the II Exhibition of Young Art of Madrid.
