A propósito de un cuadro

Cuadro Virgen del PinoPedro José Rodríguez Suárez
Cronista Oficial de San Mateo

Mis recuerdos tornaron a la niñez ante la presencia de un cuadro que me hizo retroceder más de cincuenta años en el tiempo. Visitaba en aquel momento el Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro situado en la trasera de la Catedral cuando, de repente, tuve ante mis ojos la imagen de un cuadro, de grandes dimensiones, cuadro que había formado parte de mi infancia y de mis visitas a la iglesia del pueblo que me vio nacer. Se trataba de una imagen de Nuestra Señora la Virgen del Pino que siempre vi en nuestra iglesia de San Mateo, en la nave de la derecha, justo donde hoy se encuentra la imagen del Cristo de Medinaceli.           

Con el paso del tiempo el cuadro desapareció y no se supo mas de él, hasta que un dia, estando en Teror visitando una magna exposición que allí se celebró para conmemorar el centenario de las bajadas de Nuestra Señora del Pino a Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, la comisaria de la exposición la Dra. Mª de los Reyes Hernandez Socorro (sobrina del insigne sacerdote y escritor D. Manuel Socorro, natural de Cueva Grande) al llegar ante la imagen y explicar sus características, estilo y autor terminó comentando que no se explicaba cómo esa obra se encontraba en manos privadas.

Ha pasado el tiempo y la obra por fin está localizada. Yo la llamo la Virgen viajera, pues estuvo en la iglesia de San Mateo, en casas particulares, en la ermita del Espiritu Santo en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria y hoy en la denominada Casa de los Patronos, información que obtuve del Cofrade Mayor de la ermita.

Hagamos un poco de historia. Cuando se terminó de construir la Catedral, el Cabildo Catedralicio contrató a un pintor sevillano llamado José Rodríguez de Losada para que pintara un Via Crucis en dicha Catedral, obra que hoy podemos admirar en los impresionantes frescos que cubren sus paredes. También pintó otro Via Crucis pero de pequeñas dimensiones que se encuentra en el Monasterio Cisterciense de Teror. Mientras pintaba el Via Crucis hizo amistad con el organista de la Catedral, cargo que ostentaba entonces D. Santiago Tejera Osavarry, a quien regaló uno de los dos cuadros de la Virgen del Pino. Uno ya lo hemos situado en el Museo y el otro lo donó D. Santiago Tejera, según nos cuenta el insigne investigador D. José Miguel Alzola, a la iglesia de San Mateo.

Y esta, y no otra es la historia del cuadro de la Virgen del Pino. Que cada cual saque sus conclusiones.

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not

    your mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
