Mantenga limpia Barcelona. Gracias.

Mantenga limpia Barcelona. Gracias. (Keep Barcelona tidy. Thank you). Original drawing by painter John Morrison ca. 1965.

I had the pleasure of visiting John Morrison’s studio today where he showed me some of his early drawings sketched in the streets of Barcelona in the 1960s, when he arrived in Catalonia.

Kept in a folder he had some twenty or so drawings that capture the atmosphere from the Barcelona of the time. Cars, cable cars, people, policemen, tube stations, street signs and posters tell not only the story of the city but that of a young artist discovering it.

This is a snap I took from a drawing I particularly loved but I guess it would be great to scan the whole set and put it up online for other people to enjoy.
