Catalan school - Personaje junto al portalón

Description
Catalan school - Personaje junto al portalón
Oil on cardboard - Signed - c. 1920

Catalan school 20th century
This painting has its roots in the Catalan post-romantic tradition, in a particular symbiosis between realism, impressionism and romanticism. This more lyrical trend, where figures such as Modest Urgell stood out, developed as an opposition to the predominant more luminous Impressionism. Rural subject-matters are treated with a palette where ochres, gloomy colours, mauve and sienna, combined in subtle gradations, prevail. Lonely figures populate these beautiful and melancholic places.
