People who visit the Cercle d'Economia for the first time, tend to focus on a picture that presides over one of its meeting rooms. This is a drawing by Opisso, which he dedicated to the Club Comodín (Joker Club) after meeting with its members, and which according to the author's own notes, reproduces the bohemian atmosphere of the existentialists of Saint Germain des Prés.
Between 1951 and 1958, the years in which the Cercle began to establish itself, its founders turned to a sports club, the Club Comodín, to hold their debates with total freedom and without the limitations imposed by the political regime at that time, which had restricted large meetings to those whose purpose was sport. The Opisso drawing is considered the founding "evidence" of the Cercle, a true reflection of the aspirations of its young founders to approach the world that was drawn to the north of the Pyrenees. Some people uncomfortable with their circumstances and committed to a better future. Restless to understand the Europe which was forming, to learn from its life in democracy, to approach its social, cultural and artistic movements. The result of this: the meeting with Opisso and the custom of subsequently acquiring pictorial work for their Chess Club. A tradition that took root among the founders of the Cercle and that comes to reflect the encounter of the economy with the world of culture and the arts. A reminder that this economy with such scientific aspirations of our times has been moving away from its origins, the humanities. The meeting between the economy and the humanities, remains one of the main objectives of the Cercle today.
