This work depicts a mother with her child. Executed by Joan Borrell i Nicolau (Barcelona, 1888-1951) in 1918, it belongs to the artist’s formative years within the modernista movement. Borrell trained under two sculptors of great prestige: Agapit Vallmitjana and Enric Clarasó.
This is a donation from Dr. Jesús Pérez-Rosales. At first it stood on La Fragata beach, on Passeig de la Ribera.
