Bio: Spanish artist Francisco Giral was born in Fraga, Huesca, in 1948. He has specialised in portraiture and in painting animals, with a strong bias for horses. He works from his own photographs taken in stud farms, horse shows and polo matches.
His works are in private collections in Germany, France, UK, Portugal and Spain.
One of his exhibitions was held in the Real Club de Polo in Barcelona in 2001. To coincide with the 100th anniversary of horse racing in Zaragoza, Francisco was invited to exhibit at the Club Double F during the showjumping competitions held during the Pilar fiesta in 2002. He has also exhibited at the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in 2004.
