Regoyos (bottom right hand corner)


First quarter of the 20th century


In 1912, while he was living in Barcelona, at number 15 of the long gone street called calle de la Universidad, he painted the works Landscape, Ripoll and La Diagonal (Barcelona), the first the result of a painting excursion to Ripoll and San Pedro de Torelló. The painting shows a lonely stretch of the road leading to Ripoll, a rapid impression taken on a grey day, beside one of the stopping places for the vehicles that covered the route. It captures quite beautifully the atmosphere of that day and the complete absence of traffic, which underscores the loneliness of the place. (Juan San Nicolás)
