Isaac’s life would be marked for ever by his relations with his father, Camilo Díaz Baliño, who was a leading stage designer and artist. He was his first art teacher, and his unexpected death in 1936 would lead to a major change in his way of understanding life. His wife, Carmen Arias, known as “Mimina”, would for over 70 years be his unconditional companion, providing the support he needed for the success of his projects.
