"Sculptor. His passion for this art was defined by his discovery of the works of Alonso de Berruguete at the Valladolid Museum. He researched the genuine roots of Spanish racial features through sculpture."

He was born in Palencia in 1887. In 1897 he moved to Santander, where he studied at the School of Arts and Crafts. He later moved to Madrid, where he studied at the San Fernando School of Fine Arts. His first works were busts-portraits of members of Santander society. He established his reputation as a sculptor with his first public work, the monument to Pérez Galdós in the Retiro Garden in Madrid. When Spanish Civil War broke out he settled in Colombia. After a spell in Peru, in 1952 he returned to Spain and set up home in Toledo, where he built his house-museum. On his death in 1966 he donated most of his works to Toledo.
