Three Nudes. Josep de Togores i Llach. Paris, 1924. Oil on canvas. Collection of the National Museum of Art of Catalonia.

The Museum of Art of Cerdanyola has received, as a member of the Network of Art Museums of Catalonia, the collection of some of the most representative works of the painter Josep de Togores. The work Three Nudes is one of the painter's most ambitious paintings, which was quite notorious at the time, as it was acquired by public subscription and rejected as immoral by the Board of Museums. After great controversy in the press, the painting was accepted through the mediation of the Mayor of Barcelona and the adoption of a title that gave it a more allegorical connotation, Primavera de la vida (Spring of Life).
