Francesc Gimeno

Tortosa, 1858 – Barcelona, 1927
Marina, c. 1917Oil on canvas 70 x 100 cm

The work of this Tortosan, a damned classic, is one of the most vigorous of our paintings, to the point that his landscapes come to an essence that strikes. The torment of the brush stroke, the violence with which it is administered, runs parallel to that of Van Gogh, with whom he has many points in common, personally and pictorially.
