"in 1950 at age eighteen I arrived in Spain to study at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid. I fell madly for Spain, its people. its landscape and life in Madrid. The sights, sounds, and drama of Spanish culture — bullfights, flamenco, and the most festive celebrations such as the traditional ferias of Seville and fallas of Valencia, were burned forever in my imagination, defining my own aesthetic."
