Ramon Casas, Nude with Guitar, 1894, oil on canvas

In the Cau Ferrat collections there are three oil paintings by Ramon Casas depicting female nudes: Nude with Guitar, Female Nude with Foreshortening and Female Nude (in the study). Only the first of these is dated, while the others are considered to be from the same period.  

Interest for undulating lines and arabesques shows a clear influence of certain works by Auguste Rodin, such as Andromeda and Danaïd.

The painter was interested in the possibilities of the nude, though without seeking provocation. This is one reason his figures never gaze out at the hypothetical spectator.
