Museum Lope Tablada de Diego
In the building of the Old Registry of the Villa de Sepúlveda, the Lope Tablada de Diego Museum is located, with a permanent exhibition composed of about 30 works, among which are different panoramic views of the town and other Sepúlveda sites, such as "Los Parrales" or the climb to the Church of San Bartolomé. Other landscapes of Segovia, Pedraza, Ávila or Cuenca merit attention, in which the light and a wide color stand out, which will be the hallmark of this painter from Castilla.
In this collection, donated by his descendants, the viewer can enter into his role as a portraitist. Portraits that show the soul of the portrayed through their eyes and thanks to realistic paintings. The exhibition is completed with still lifes, which highlight the different elements that make it up (trout, crabs, hares, pestle, glasses) and works that show the bullfighting tradition in the province of Segovia.
Lope Tablada de Diego (1903-1974), born in Segovia, spent great seasons in Sepúlveda, the hometown of his mother, hence his connection with the town. The painting carries it in the genes, since his father was also a painter, known for the decoration of the ceilings of the Juan Bravo and Cervantes theaters in Segovia. Tablada de Diego was first trained at the School of Arts and Crafts of Segovia, then moved to the Royal Academy of San Fernando in Madrid, where he followed the guidelines of neoclassicism but inscribed his work in the tradition of romantic prints, until finding his own style within realism, with influences from Sorolla, Zuloaga, Solana and the Zubiaurre brothers.
