Carmen Jiménez Serrano “La Zubia”

She was born on the 21st of September in 1920 in la Zubia, Granada. She was a painter and a sculptor. She became teacher of modeling at the University of Fine Arts of Seville, she an academic at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Granada.

She started her artistic studies at the School of Arts and Crafts in Granada shortly after the Civil War ended in 1939.

Later she went to the school in Madrid, thanks to her income and a scholarship from the city council of her hometown. There she studied painting and discovered her interest for sculpture.

About her style, aesthetics is her main interest — the beauty of the forms and volumes, full of rhythm, proportion and harmony, where the interest for the human figure predominates.

Juan Manuel Miñarro, an Andalusian sculptor, highlights her quality as an artist and as a teacher. The painter and sculptor Ricardo Suárez emphasizes her expressiveness with clay, her stone carving and her great mastery in volumetry.

Her work can be found in the Contemporary Museum of Madrid, Círculo de Bellas Artes, the library of the University of Granada or the Fine Arts Museum of Seville.

Carmen Jiménez got the Medal’s Honor of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts

She was awarded the Medal of the Circle of Beautiful Arts in Madrid (1949), the National Prize of Sculpture (1951), the Medal’s Honor of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Santa Isabel of Hungary and the Gold Medal of Granada.

She died on the 19th of October in 2016 in Seville.

  1. Amazing work, Melania! Congrats! I checked some mistakes or highlighted some parts for revision. Feel free to whatever! 😀
    We’ll be using all your work on women here for an audiobook we could do together, or reading exercises for our exams. We’ll see. It’s all up to you, of course! Big hug!
