Hermen Anglada-Camarasa (Barcelona, 1871 – Port de Pollença, 1959) was one of the most internationally prestigious and successful Spanish artists, finding acclaim in Europe and Argentina in the early 20th century and in the United States from 1924 onwards. Both his subject matter and his technique, characterised by a grandiloquent use of colour, contrasts and lighting effects, earned this artist a place among the great names of international modern art.

This exhibition presents some 60 works that together form a journey through the different creative stages of the artist’s work. Starting with his earliest works, which date from the late 19th century and form part of the predominant naturalist movement of the time, the display goes on to explore in detail the artist’s Parisian period and then continues through the magnificent landscapes that he painted in Mallorca. The circuit is concluded with several oil paintings produced during the final phase of his career, which coincided with the years of the Spanish Civil War and the post-war period. The exhibition also includes a documentary section featuring photographs, exhibition catalogues and publications, as well as a documentary film about the artist and his life.
