Esteban Vicente (Turégano, Segovia 1903 - Bridgehampton, New York, 2001) lives somewhere between two cultures. A disciple of Francisco Bores, during his beginnings he maintains direct contact with the Class of 27, with the likes of Luis Buñuel, Federico García Lorca, Rafael Alberti and Juan Ramón Jiménez. In 1929 he moves to Paris, where he meets, among others, Pablo Picasso, who unarguably contributes to his formation as a painter. His return to Spain is interrupted by the outbreak of the Civil War and Esteban Vicente goes into exile. In 1936 he moves to New York, where he develops his artistic career and his work reaches the maturity that would establish him as an artist.
