Nu del blau (Nude with Bruise), Josep Viladomat, 1936, Barcelona, bronze

This piece, created in 1936 with the name Nu (Nude), depicts a nude young woman who is touching her thigh. It is also known as Nu del blau (Nude with Bruise) because of the circumstances in which it was made, as Viladomat did not manage to find any posture for the model that satisfied him until the girl revealed a bruise that she had on her thigh.

This work earned him the Campeny Prize at the Spring Exhibition held at the Saló de Montjuïc in 1936.

The work is owned by the Provincial Council of Barcelona, which has lent it to the MAC.
