The theater, a jewel of modernist architecture of the period and international center of art and culture since it opened, 1913, until it was abandoned towards the end of the 80s, has been a source of inspiration for many of my paintings dedicated to the Tangiers and at the same theater.

The book cover of the book is entitled “A scenario in ruinspublished to mark the centenary of the theater in 2013, and literary writing as an artistic appeal for the recovery of the Gran Teatro Cervantes of Tangier.
Work done in oil on canvas glued to table, in 2011.
