Member of the Masriera artistic dynasty, this is one of the most iconic paintings by this multifaceted author, painter, set designer, playwright and goldsmith who created a technique known as esmalts de Barcelona (Barcelona varnish) for jewellery. The Japanese parasol is a feature of many of his works which were later displayed at international exhibitions. His palette catches the light and shadows with a touch that shows his Mediterranean heritage and the influence of symbolism.
