Win A free MND awareness band !

Okay ! Can you give me the name of the artist who sculptured these master pieces and the location where they are situated in ? And in doing so- win yourselves a free MND awareness band .I think this is quite easy-so I`am not giving out too many clues this time !
This person was trained as a skilled draftsman and had an extensive artistic repertoire including films , sculpture and photography. Most of his paintings were said to be influenced by the Renaissance masters, The location is a popular destination for luxury cruise ships. Hmm .... not my cup of tea- but what do you think ? any ideas ? Can you spot our travelling bands by the way ? Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Looks Mediterranean - somewhere along the coast of Spain, I 'd say! Looks like an artistic impression of a charging bull, so I'll plump for Barcelona (But it could also be Torres on the coast of Portugal LOL!)

No idea, but I love the power and feeling of movement they have.

Terry said...

I think we're going to need some clues, Janet.

JohnD said...

I dunno - I need a clue - I've given it my best shot - Valencia, possibly? (But I'm only guessing!)

Janet said...

O.k. some more clues !

He attributed his love of everything that was gilded and excessive and his passion for luxury and love of oriental clothes to a self styled "Arab Lineage " claiming his ancestors were descended from the Moors.
He was born in 1904 in Figueres.

Of course! I have wristbands so I'll add clues - he was also a painter and film maker.
