Author: Emerencià Roig i Raventos (Sitges, 1881 - Barcelona, 1935)

Emerencià Roig i Raventós (Sitges, 1881 - Barcelona, 1935), son of the Luminist School painter Joan Roig i Soler, gave up his professional career as a pharmacist in 1917 because of asthma. He devoted his life to the study of the Catalan maritime heritage and the Catalan Navy of the 19th century.

Through his drawings, Emerencià Roig attempted to preserve precise information about the great age of sailing, just before sails were replaced by the arrival of the steam engine. Rather than being purely artistic in nature, they aimed to provide a graphic complement to his ethnographic and philological work. Nonetheless, the quality of his artistic creations is exceptional.
The Emerencià Roig Seamanship Collection, which also includes model boats, paintings, objects, drawings and publications, was donated to the town of Sitges by his brother, the physician and writer Josep Roig I Raventós. It was presented to the public in Sitges in July 1936. A new permanent exhibition is currently being prepared, of which this temporary display is a sample.

 This exhibition will be open until October 2017.
