Antonio Machado (1875-1939) was a Spanish poet and one of the leading voices of the Generation of '98 literary movement. Will Faber (born Rudolf Wilhelm Faber) was born in Saarbrucken, Germany in 1901 and studied illustration at the art schools there and in Munich. Beginning in 1932 he began traveling and living in Spain (returning to Germany during the civil war), where he worked as a commercial artist and, after about 1950, as a fine artist. He died in Barcelona in 1987.
