The Ministry of Culture and Portavocía inaugurates today the Museum of Iberian Art 'The Cigarralejo' of Mula the temporary exhibition 'Portraits of women and studies of engravings'.

It is a sample that gathers more than fifty works by the French artist based in Mula Olivier Bervialle.

The works have been done in pencil and using the technique of linocut.

In total, 58 works are exhibited, about 15 drawings that are portraits of oriental and Mediterranean women and the rest are linocut of animals and vegetation inspired by archeology and cretan, Egyptian, Etruscan and Iranian art.

The director general of Cultural Heritage, Maria Comas, explained that "much of Olivier Bervialle's work focuses on ancient art, especially on the decorative motifs used, for example, in tiles, vases or carpets; Work is related in some way to the archaeological material that keeps the muleño museum, a space that always opens its doors to current artists, exploring fields different from that of Iberian art.

Comas also recalled that the Museum of Iberian Art El Cigarralejo de Mula "is one of the exhibition spaces of the Ministry of Culture that has increased its number of visitors during the past year, around 30 percent, which shows The interest aroused by its programming and its capacity to retain the public through activities such as conferences and workshops that contribute to the decentralization of culture. "

Olivier Bervialle has been based in Spain for 23 years.

In 1992 he settled in Mojácar, then in Cordoba and since 2005 he lives in Mula.

He studied English literature at the Sorbonne in Paris and Graphic Arts (drawing, lithography, sweet carving) at the Superior School of Fine Arts in the French capital.

After a prolonged and voluntary interruption, he has recently resumed the production of engravings (especially linocut, a modest technique that allows printing even by hand) and drawings that also intend to convey to the viewer a literary air and memories of some of his readings.

The exhibition 'Portraits of women and studios of engravings' opens today at 20:00 hours and can be visited at the Museum 'The Cigarralejo' of Mula until next March 19.

Opening hours are from Tuesday to Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
