Biography – First Commissions – Barcelona – (1935 – 1942)

Felipe Bertran Güell, a relative of the Vidal-Quadras, commissions the young man a series of pen and ink portraits to illustrate a book on contemporary history.

Fernando Rivière, a successful industrialist and Alejo’s uncle, commissions portraits of his family in charcoal and oil.

Alejo is later asked to do portraits of the children, nephews, close relatives and friends of the Güell family. This gives the 22-year-old artist the opportunity to organize his first exhibition at a gallery in Barcelona.
