Hbull, 24 in x 32 in, acrylic on canvas, Ferrara, 2019, nature painting Alessandro Tognin.
The picture ideally represents the relationship between Taurus and bullfighter because they are close and, at the same time, distant. So a relationship of love and hate.
In fact, since 2013, in Spain, bullfighting is considered a Cultural Heritage throughout the State.
In the law approved by the Spanish Cortes, in fact, for the first time, the bullfighting is regulated, favored and protected. But the popular sympathy for this show is diminishing over time.
Moreover, the celebrations with bulls that are celebrated in Spain have fallen by 60% in a decade.
There are at least a dozen provinces that have abandoned these kinds of parties in the past ten years.
Spain is divided into two factions. In front of the bullfighter who, before inflicting the coup de grace on the bull, wipes his tears with a white handkerchief. The episode took place at the Real Maestranza festival in Seville, at the hands of Morante de la Puebla.
The public of the plaza de toros reacted with silence. This was not the case for the social networks that were unleashed in expressing indignation and dismay. In the painting Hbull, the artist Tognin Alessandro represents them as friends. But unfortunately, the red color of the cloth represents the struggle that the two will have afterwards.
