Realism and figurative art

Many artists active throughout Noucentisme and the between-war realism periods continued to work after the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), impervious to the development of the avant-garde idiom. There was a kind of natural extension of figurative art aesthetics until its founders ceased to be active.

Figurative art lived on, clearly reminiscent of idioms that drew from a variety of sources such as Primitivism, New Objectivity, ongoing landscapism with Mediterranean roots and Decorativism.
