Catalogue Note

When Anglada-Camarasa settled in Port Pollenca in 1914, he turned to landscape painting, developing a progressive and experimental rather than realistic style. This first Majorcan period (1914-1936) coincides with a major change in the artist's technique. Colour was still his primary concern, however he moved away from the use of glazes, instead applying paint thickly onto the canvas directly from the tube, and developing in the process an array of striking colour combinations.

This work relates to a period when the artist’s international reputation was well established, having exhibited in Latin America and the US in the preceding years, culminating at the Carnegie Institute of New York in 1925. For this exhibition he had sent a collection of his newest work to hang alongside works by Paul Signac, Henry Le Sidaner and Claude Monet.
