First floor of the Maricel Museum

The itinerary takes us from Neoclassicism, represented by the drawings of Vicente López, through Romanticism, with works by Joaquín Espalter and Federico de Madrazo, to the works of the Sitges luminist painters.

As we progress through the century, colour gains prominence in drawings along with freer, more expressive brushwork.

Fortuny’s vibrant brush strokes are emulated in paintings by Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, such as The Corpus Christi procession and in Port of Barcelona, the artist’s first preserved oil painting.
