Modest Urgell i Inglada

Sunset landscape
Oil on canvas
163 x 292 cm

This large painting is part of the Majestic Hotel collection. It was one of Joan Miro’s favorite works, who had been Urgell’s pupil at La Llotja School of Art. It was part of the exhibition In front of the the Horizon of the Miró Foundation (October 2013-February 2014)
The varnish yellowing over time and excessively bright prevented us to distinguish many of the elements of the work and obscured the chromaticity of the painter’s palette. With the cleaning of the varnish it has been able to recover the atmosphere and perspective characteristic of Urgell, master of Catalan landscaping.
