Festa Major (Festival), Josep Aragay, 1937. Etching.

Festa Major (Festival), 1937, is an etching on local customs. Aragay shows a Sardana dance in Breda town square. The musicians in the group, the dancers and the characters that fill the square all bring to mind the figures Aragay drew in the satirical magazines where he worked. The scene faithfully reproduces the façade of the Town Hall and the Gothic apse of the church. Breda landscapes were a recurring theme for the artist.
