The CEEH, the Biblioteca Nacional de España and the Museo del Prado have teamed up to publish the catalogue raisonné of the drawings of Manuel Salvador Carmona.
The CEEH has awarded a research grant to Ana Hernández Pugh to study the drawings of Manuel Salvador Carmona (1734−1820): some three hundred works spanning his entire career, from his formative period to the final years of his life. Drawings in red chalk and black pencil are predominant, though this medium is sometimes combined with brush and wash. Hernández Pugh will work under the supervision of José Manuel Matilla, head of Drawings and Prints at the Museo del Prado, an institution that is taking part in the project and will publish the catalogue raisonné resulting from the research together with the CEEH and the BNE, where most of this corpus is held.
Ana Hernández Pugh holds a degree in Art History from the Universidad CEU San Pablo in Madrid, where she won an extraordinary end of degree award. She also has a master’s in Advanced Museum and Art Historical Heritage Studies from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid and a diploma in Applied Photography from International College of Professional Photography in Melbourne. Different scholarships allowed her to further her training at the Biblioteca Nacional de España and the Museo Nacional del Prado.
