Allegory of Sitges, Pere Jou and Francisco, 1954, Sitges, sculpted stone.   Art of the City of Sitges collection

This sculpture by Pere Jou i Francisco (Barcelona, 1891 - Sitges, 1964) depicts a half-kneeling nude woman holding a bunch of malvasia grapes; with her right hand she moves it towards her face and with the left helps to hold it up straight.

The presence of the grape is a tribute to Sitges and malvasia vine. The sensuality of the naked body enhances that of the fruit  and refers to the the atmosphere of Sitges, so conducive to the enjoyment of life.
