“To create art imbued with the scent of Christ, saturated with elements from the past, vibrant with the spirit of the Bible; art that is alive because it is rooted in tradition and, drawing from the past, attends to the needs of the present.” Felix Granda y Buylla, “Talleres de Arte”, Madrid, 1911.
With these words, Fr. Felix Granda, founder of Talleres de Arte GRANDA, began a chapter in our first ever Catalogue, which he so eloquently titled My Purpose.
In this first Catalogue he expressed the core ideas that were the bases upon which he built the business – ideas that still today constitute the core of our mission and values: Passion, Excellence and Art.
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in the introduction to his book “The Spirit of the Liturgy” expresses the thought that sacred art is always a gift freely received as an inspiration, it being the fruit of contemplative faith.
“An endeavor that begins at the very origins; to drink from the springs that inspired Christian art in its most glorious moments, and all this, felt and executed with meticulous research and study. This is what I have set out to accomplish with my personal effort and what I expect to be accomplished by the artists and craftsmen who work in this studio.” Fr. Felix Granda y Buylla, “Talleres de Arte”, Madrid, 1910.
“Art must become a language capable to speak of and to teach about Christ; not to teach ourselves and much less to boast about our prowess and vanity.” Fr. Felix Granda y Buylla, Talleres de Arte, Madrid, 1910.
