    Biography : Julio Larraz was born in Havana, Cuba, on March 12 1944. The son of a newspaper editor, he began drawing at a very early age. In 1961 his whole family moved to Miami, Florida. In 1962 they moved to Washington, DC and in 1964 to New York .There he began to draw political caricatures that were published by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune and Vogue magazine, among others. In 1967 Larraz began to work full time as professional painter. Larraz credits several New York artists such as Burt Silverman, for teaching him different painting techniques. In 1971 his first individual exhibition took place in the Pyramid Gallery in Washington, DC. In 1972 his work was exhibited in the New School for Social Research in New York and in 1973 he carried out another exhibition with the FAR Gallery in New York. In 1976 he won both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the National Institute of Arts and Letters awards. The same year he was also rewarded with the Cintas scholarship of the International Education Institute. One year later, Larraz moved to San Patricio, New Mexico, fascinated by the light and atmosphere of Valle Hondo’s arid hills. There he met Ron Hall, whose gallery in Dallas, Texas harbored his work for several years. Ron Hall would become one of his best friends. In 1983 he moved to Paris, where he stayed for two years. In this new environment he found inspiration for his paintings. While living in Paris, Larraz also travelled to Morocco. In 1984 he moved again to the United States. In 1983 he met Nohra Haime whose New York gallery represented him until 1994. In 1998 he began to work with the Marlborough Gallery in New York which represented him for fifteen years. Larraz moved to Florence, Italy, in the year 2000, staying there until 2004. Once again he found new sources of inspiration there.

About

Galeria de Arte Ascaso is acknowledged by its demanding selection of works, the high standards of its exhibitions and the quality of its services to the public. It has been active for 27 years, starting at its headquarters in Valencia in 1989, and continuing since October 2002 in its facilities in Caracas, a pioneering edifice in Venezuela, designed with the most advanced criteria of museology applied to a private gallery.

Its profile is open to universal art of all times, emphasizing the presence of Venezuelan and Latin American artists, consecrated maestros as well as new talents, focused essentially on painting and sculpture.

Displaying the features of a small, four-story high museum, Galeria de Arte Ascaso in Caracas is endowed with perfectly illuminated spaces providing the ideal setting for the exhibition of artworks. It consists of three specially conditioned salons and a fourth lounge for sculptures and multiple uses. Its distribution is dynamic, adaptable to different types of exhibitions. Each year, these spaces house individual, collective, anthological, generic and retrospective shows and other proposals, endorsed by first-rate curatorial work and complemented with catalogs and other publications.

The first building designed in Venezuela for these purposes is a product of contemporary international architecture, modern in its style but with a classic, versatile language. The construction area covers about 21,500 square feet. The spaces specifically designed to shelter artworks are risen over the neighboring street by means of a podium or foundation enclosing different services and parking areas. Through a pair of staircases, visitors gain access to a balcony leading to the vast main façade whose crystals reflect shades of gold, silver and gray, a transparent composition which takes advantage of natural light to cast shadows toward a large, 33-feet-high atrium on the lobby, toward which the balconies of the halls lean out. It can be toured vertically, through cantilevered staircases and/or a panoramic elevator. There are services, bathrooms and deposits on each floor, everything carefully finished in cream-color marble, brown granite, wood and steel.

Its enclosed salons, 522 feet long with a total surface of 4,945 square feet, with heights ranging from 7.5 to 11 feet within the perimeter, suffice to accommodate either large-format works or pieces designed for a closer, more intimate inspection, like in a specialized cabinet. The terrace is absolutely free on the northern, western and eastern sides, with an area of 2,225 square feet and a maximum height of 23 feet, roofed with a slight domed cover in white canvas with an oval base. It offers a 360º view over a fine portion of the city with the imposing Avila Mountain in the background.
