Antonio León Ortega (1907–91) was a sculptor from Ayamonte, depicted here in his workshop in Huelva, which attracted many other artists and came to be known as the San Cristóbal Academy. His work focused on images of "Semana Santa," or Holy Week, (especially in Huelva and Ayamonte), and religious works, all in his own very distinct style. Daily newspaper Odiel.
