From every artist he admires, Muxart tries to draw out the artistic roots to shape his own particular mythology

The Muxart artistic and geographic way is made up of field trips, museum visits, readings and contemplations. His visual and conceptual references range from Romanesque to Leonardo da Vinci and Zurbaran, from Titian to Picasso, from Goya to Cezanne or Van Gogh and from Gorky to De Staël. Muxart’s training and works are an example of complicity and tributes, always with the admiration and generosity of an artist who can see and enjoy good paintings from all eras, such as the Cubism that marks Autoretrat or the Impressionism of M. Teresa Muxart. Attentive and generous, Muxart always shares his admiration for the artists who have marked him, for the works that are unforgettable and the work processes he admires. The visual and conceptual referents of the Romanesque, present in Pessebre, and artists such as Goya, Rouault, de Stäel, Gorky in his face of Jesus, or Fellini, are an essential baggage.

The recognition of common references from both modernity and historical past marks the creation of Grup Taüll in 1955, consisting of Aleu, Cuixart, Guinovart, Mercadé, Muxart, Tàpies and Tharrats, with the desire to promote the spirit initiated by Dau al Set and the programme of the October Salons in Barcelona.
