Ramón Gómez de la Serna Exhibit: Greguerías

The Special Collections Department at the University of Pittsburgh's Library System celebrated the online accessibility of a majority of the Papers of Ramón Gómez de la Serna with an exhibit of selected manuscripts and photographs.



As expected, Ramón’s papers comprise  a wide range of materials documenting his creative work, research, and interest in greguerías, including his own drawings to illustrate greguerías, anthologies of phrases and sayings in related style selected from a wide range of authors,  his notes and explorations into associated subject areas such as humor and the metaphor, and much more.  Shown here are a few samples.
