A large and beautiful cracked canvas straight out of the corridors of time. A reinterpretation of the work of Josep Tapiró i Baró.
Every accident and lack, every crack or patina effect is never the result of chance... everything is brought together here so that this reinterpretation becomes more real than life.
Josep Tapiró i Baró is a Spanish painter born in Reus, February 7, 1836 and died in Tangier on October 4, 1913. He is known for his watercolors representing portraits of the inhabitants of Tangier. He studied drawing and painting with his childhood friend Mariano Fortuny in Barcelona under the direction of Domingo Soberano.
The two friends then completed their training at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid. Thanks to many trips across Europe between 1863 and 1870, he consolidated his style, strongly influenced by his friend. They travel together to Morocco for the first time in 1871, and following this decisive event in the life of the two artists, Tapiró decides to settle in Tangier, in 1876, where he will remain, for almost forty years, until upon his death in 1913.
