The friendship and artistic complicity of the painters of the luminist school with the modernista artists, as denoted in the 1892 Fine Arts Exhibition ,entered a second chapter three years later with the renovation of the Café Continental on Passeig de la Ribera.

Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Joaquim de Miró, Antoni Almirall, Càndid Duran, Santiago Rusiñol and Miquel Utrillo executed a set of paintings to decorate the new premises. The former café reopened under the name of Cerveseria Cau Ferrat, the same name of the house-cum-studio that Rusiñol had had in Sitges since 1893.

Càndid Duran painted a humorous portrait of participants in the work Els pintamones, where we see Santiago Rusiñol in the foreground, followed Duran himself, Almirall, Miró, Mas i Fondevila and Utrillo, accompanied by Love, Rusiñol’s little dog.
