In early 2009 one of our ASPAS members, JOAN MARTÍ,  died. A great person, an excellent painter and a strong enthusiast of Pastel.
Many Spanish pastellists have learned or perfected their technique with his help both personally and through the publications he to which contributed. Go from here our appreciation and heartfelt tribute.
