María Luisa Puiggner
(Jerez de la Frontera, 1875 – Sevilla, 1921)
Oil on canvas
86 x 74.5 cm. 1903
She was a disciple of the painter José Jimenez Aranda. He was part of the Sevillian art exhibitions and competitions and participated in the feminist art exhibition at the Amaré Salon in Madrid in 1903.
One of his works has been part of the “Invitadas” exhibition at the Prado Museum. Very little is known about this painter’s work, which is characterized by its customary themes and naturalist-style paintings.
The work was covered with a very thick layer of nicotine that completely darkened the colors. After the cleaning we can appreciate the brightness of the white colours and the thickness of the brushstrokes.
