A COLLECTOR FROM CREVILLENTE DONATES A PORTRAIT OF VARGAS LLOSA TO MUA

José Manuel Magro Gallardo is an art collector from Crevillente who donated to the Museum of the University of Alicante a portrait of the Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa. According to MUA's director, Mauro Hernández, this collector contacted the University when he found out that Vargas Llosa was the honorary president of the Digital Library Miguel de Cervantes and that he also was going to be sworn in Doctor Honoris Causa by the University. The portrait, an oil painting (46 x 56), was attributed to Hiscocks, an English author contemporary of Pablo Picasso, according to the collector. The work is now part of the museum's funds.
