"Alejandro Obregón was born in 1920 in Barcelona, Spain, where his family lived for some time. Most of his childhood was spent in Barranquilla, Colombia and Liverpool, England. In 1939 he studied fine arts in Boston for a year and then returned to Barcelona to serve as Vice Consul of Colombia for four years. In 1948 Obregón was named Director of the School of Fine Arts in Santafé de Bogotá. His career as director lasted barely a year, but the seeds of change that he planted took rapid root. He then went to Alba, near Avignon in France, where he remained until 1955. A painting from that year, Still Life in Yellow, shows that his personal style was then fully developed, and exhibits the formal elements that came to characterize his work."
