A woman, a painter, figuration, modernity, vanguard, civil war, Franquism, neo-figuration? these are words that combined together have a concrete name and surname in our context: Menchu Gal. This painter from Irun was the second woman to be awarded the Manuel Lekuona prize because she symbolised all these values in a singular, independent, coherent, brace and exceptional manner in unfavourable artistic and historical circumstances.
