Lanzarote Cabildo has acquired three paintings by César Manrique which will be displayed in the Museum of International Contemporary Art (MIAC) in Arrecife’s Castillo de San José.

Two of the paintings are untitled abstracts from 1985 and 1987, which reflect the artist’s fascination with Lanzarote’s volcanic landscape and incorporate vivid red shapes that . The third is a larger work titled The Arrow of Time,  painted in 1989,  three years before Manrique’s death. All three works were acquired from a private collector in Tenerife.

Benjamin Perdomo, head of a Centres of Cultures, Arts and Tourism (CACT) also said that the island could “expect good news soon” about the acquisition of further works by Manrique.
