Monedero, Angel Lizcano

Ángel Lizcano Monedero began his art studies at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando at the age of fourteen, where he graduated with honors. He continued with his self-education by copying the Old Masters Francisco Goya and Diego Velázquez at the Museo del Prado.

In 1869, he furthered his studies with a trip to Italy, paid for by Manuel Antonio the Marqués de Bedmar. On his return, he toured much of Spain and participated in the National Exposition of Fine Arts, where he sold a painting to King Amedeo I. He received four medals at various expositions from 1876 to 1887 and for many years, he worked as a traveling artist.

Angel Lizcano Monedero gained a reputation as an illustrator and engraver, providing images for a wide variety of magazines, books, and posters, over 800 in all. Among his best-known book illustrations were those for the Episodios Nacionales by Benito Pérez Galdós, and theatrical pieces by Vital Aza, Tomás Luceño. Some of his works were adapted for postcards by the French photographer, Jean Laurent.

At the age of fifty, the death of his wife affected him tremendously and he started to have mental disorders, although he continued to paint and was named a Professor of drawing at the Círculo de Bellas Artes. Later, the quality of Ángel Lizcano Monedero's work began to suffer as he created rapidly produced bullfight scenes and other popular images to maintain his income. When his mental state had made it almost impossible for him to paint, the Círculo voted to provide him with a yearly annuity. In 1929, he was put in a mental asylum where he died the same year.
