Santiago Rusiñol, Poetry, 1894-1895, Paris, oil on canvas

After returning from Pisa and Florence in 1894, the influence of early Italian painters on Rusiñol would be seen in three large panels now hanging in the pointed arch apertures at the end of the Grand Hall. All of them were conceived to decorate this part of Cau Ferrat. We refer to the well-known allegories of Painting, Music and Poetry. Done in Paris in late 1894 and early 1895, they are now considered to be Rusiñol’s distinct contribution to the Symbolist movement, a popular European tendency at the end of the century that Rusiñol identified with.
