Alpargatas Calendars

During 1946 and 1947, Medrano illustrated the famous calendars commissioned by Alpargatas (a textile company). These calendars were an indispensable item in every Argentine home, illustrated until then with gaucho themes by Zavattaro and Molina Campos. Medrano broadened the subjects of these well known calendars with urban scenes (bar, billiards, football field) and Argentine customs (beach, casino, Sunday spaghetti).
