Montserrat Gudiol, DRIFTER'S DAY
Montserrat Gudiol (Source)

Montserrat Gudiol (Montserrat Gudiol i Corominas; 9 June 1933 – 25 December 2015) was a Catalonian painter.


Gudiol was born in Barcelona as the daughter of the art historian José Gudiol Ricart, who authored many books and ran a medieval painting restoration studio.[1] She trained in his studio and began painting on her own in 1950.

In 1980 she made a monumental Saint Benedict for the Abbey of Montserrat and in 1981 she was the first woman to enter the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi [Wikidata] (Reial Acadèmia Catalana de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi). Gudiol died in Barcelona.


She is known for her portrayals of (mostly female) figures portrayed in space with ambiguous backgrounds. Some of her work seems to recall Hieronymus Bosch with a wink at her father’s studio, and others seem to reflect the works of famous painters of her day such as Picasso. (Source)


I am Volker Schunck and live in Dresden, Germany. First I was an industrial clerk, then I studied theology. Through my engagement with Zen, I became aware of the Christian mysticism. Meanwhile, I go my own way. For me, faith is not a world-view but a being. It is important to me, not to live lost in thought but aware and intensely. For me, this also includes careful handling of other people. The NVC (Nonviolent Communication), which I learned during my training as a mediator, helps me with this.
