Catalogue Note

"His faceless portraits are not merely a tribute to the classical models which he comes close to and venerates without undue adulation. They are also a statement of his own art; free, joyfully crafted with a repeated emphasis on craftsmanship, which magically substitutes the more or less faithful reproduction of the model for a confident complacency with what "is seen" in his work once it is freed from the 'pretext.'" Alfonso Perez Sanchez, Exh. Cat. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Manolo Valdes, 1981-2006, Madrid 2006, p. 41
