VALENCIA.- On the occasion of Ramón Gaya’s

hundredth anniversary IVAM exhibits “Homenaje a la pintura” [Homage to
painting], which is co-organized by the State Society of Cultural
Commemorations
(SECC), in order to recall the love for painting expressed by Ramón Gaya
through
his tributes to past distinguished painters. It was during his exile in
Mexico
when, away from European museums but surrounded with painting
reproductions he
was fond of, he decided to pay tribute to the works he considered, more
than
historic witnesses, fully alive, as years after being created still
impress
those who gaze at them
.
