Juan Antonio Rodríguez Hernández (11 October 1922 January 2017) was a Spanish painter from Seville, the son of the well known painter Rafael Blas Rodríguez, who became his principal teacher. He completed his studies at the School of Applied Arts and Artistic Crafts and, from 1940, at the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes. Since the completion of his studies in 1946 he has obtained many distinctions: the award of the Directorate General of Fine Arts at the Autumn Exhibition of Seville (1982) and that of the Royal Master of Cavalry of Seville at the aforementioned Autumn Exhibition of 1987. He has taught as a teacher of color at the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes in Seville. From his painting it has been said that it is a song to life, for the joy, optimism and beauty that he knows how to convey through brushes. The religious genre is the most representative of Juan Antonio's work. Juan Antonio was the author of the drawings of the ceramic cloths that decorate the facade of the church of Lord San José de Sevilla (1973).
