Coves de Mallorca. Decoració de la casa Trinxet, Joaquim Mir i Trinxet, 1903, oil on canvas, 190 × 220 cm

Ramon Casas i Carbo (Barcelona, 1866-1932) was a painter, illustrator and sign-maker associated with Impressionism and one of the promoters of Catalan Art Nouveau. This sign is based on a large work that was part of the decoration of the Trinxet House that Joaquim Mir had made for his uncle. It is a large format landscape with intense chromatic force. In this piece, which dates from Mir’s sojourn on Mallorca, the painter depicts a view of the caves of Majorca. The intense colour overpowers the shapes because there is no reference to the landscape. Oon the contrary, viewers see the vibration of colours, with a predominance of cool colours like blues, greys and greens, although in the upper left the warmer colours stand out more.
