The present catalogue raisonné is being established by Olivier Weber-Caflisch and the antonio saura foundation archives.
It will be freely and exclusively accessible on the present website soon.
This new entry on the web site, a constant work in progress, wil be regularly expanded and updated.
Cataloguing of the artist’s complete work in painting, drawing and other media is organized thematically according to a model originally laid out by Antonio Saura; it corresponds to the following table of contents:
Prehistory / Initial paintings
Each thematic group of works (Goya’s dog, Crucifixions, etc.) includes various subgroups that are presented in such a way as to distinguish works painted on canvas from those done on other supports. All works are presented alphabetically.
It was Antonio Saura himself who came up with the names of all of the groups and subgroups of works, as well as the titles of works themselves; they appear here in English translation for the most part.
The foundation invites all individuals and institutions possessing a work by Antonio Saura to send:
1) a precise and complete description of the work (see below);
2) (if possible) a 13 x 18 cm transparency (including colour scale) of the front as well as the rear of the work if the latter displays any annotations or other handwritten marks;
3) an 18 x 24 cm non-digital photo printed on paper (including colour scale) of the front as well as the rear of the work if the latter displays any annotations or other handwritten marks; and finally;
4) a CD with a high-definition digital view (a minimum of 300 dpi and including the colour scale) of the front as well as the rear of the work if the latter displays any annotations or other handwritten marks.
The information required for a description that can be used in the catalogue raisonné would include the following:
