Rodrigo Hurtado studied for bachelor and master of fine arts degrees at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, going on to study privately with the artists Aldo Bahamonde and Antonio Fernández García. Hurtado’s work has been seen in group and solo exhibitions in Madrid.

The portrait is of Juan, the owner of a tavern in Aravaca, a small town near Madrid. The bar opened in 1947 and was first run by Juan’s father. Juan took over and now at the age of eighty-two continues to run the business with his own son, Luis. Juan is a well-known and highly respected member of the community.
