Juan González Alacreu is a Spanish painter, was born in Burriana, Castellón in 1937. At the age of eight he began taking lessons at the School of Arts and Crafts; at the age of sixteen he won a scholarship at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos de Valencia, where his teachers were Sanchis Gago, Genaro Lahuerta and Bayarri.
He worked for years in illustration for various publishers, until he decided to devote himself to painting. The purity of the drawing is the basis of his work, following the light, diffused lights and reflections, with vigorous strokes, full of oil.
The female figure is in most of his paintings the star of his paintings, but always in each of them we find, the Mediterranean landscape, the genre scenes of Valencian life, the activity of daily life and the chores in the fields of rice Albufera. Some art experts have framed his work in Classicism and Impressionism, with considerable influence from Joaquín Sorolla. For many years he was the official painter of the largest Faller in Valencia.
