La Virtut (Virtue), Josep Llimona, 1910, Barcelona, polished plaster

This is an allegorical representation that shows the figure of a young woman dressed in a tunic that reaches her feet and a veil that covers her head, who is clasping a bouquet to her chest.

This is the original plaster cast made based on a clay model. It is polished and has pencil points that serve as a reference when the original was transferred piece to a stone sculpture based on a spot machine. The original measures 90 cm tall, half the size of the definitive stone sculpture. The work was crafted in 1910 for the façade of the Caixa Sabadell building designed by the architect Jeroni Martorell.
