Alejandro Sirio 1890-1953

It is impossible to do justice to the magnificence of these drawings in a computer screen but it is probably the only way that some people could become aware of the existence of this fabulous artist.
Alejandro Sirio was born in Oviedo, Spain and emigrated to Buenos Aires in 1910. He came to Argentina to work as an accountant but became one of the greatest illustrators that ever lived in South America.
El "Lolo" Amengual gave me a copy of this book and I never thanked him enough.
It is very difficult to find but try anyway. The ISBN is: ISBN 978-987-23136-2-3
