Ángel del Campo

Portrait of scientist Ángel del Campo y Cerdán (1881-1944), chemist from Cuenca. He pioneered Spanish Chemistry revitalization for the 20th century first third. His teaching and researching contributions made him a lead figure of Spanish Chemistry European convergence, creating worthy Spectroscopy and Analytical Chemistry schools, the latter founded before Spanish Civil War and active during this period. A unique institution which continued with the same staff from 1939. This piece is inspired on aesthetic and graphic composition found on propaganda posters from this period, crafted by talented illustrators like Arturo and Vicente Ballester, Jacinto Bofarull y Bañón.
