Portrait of Miquel de Palol, Ricard Guinó, cast in bronze from the original plaster model. Donation by Maria and Miquel de Palol

An original sculpture by Guinó which constitutes a full-length portrait of Miquel de Palol. It is an excellent portrait in the impressionist style. Guinó captures a precise moment in the life of this major writer from Girona. Palol, standing though leaning slightly, holds a book behind his back.

The Palol family still had the original plaster cast that Guinó made in 1910 and donated it to the Girona City Council in 2013. The Council made a bronze copy of the statue, which is at the History Museum exhibited in the section devoted to the art and culture of Girona Modernisme and Noucentisme.
