Born in Ribadesella, Asturias, Regoyos enrolled at the Escuela de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de S Fernando in Madrid, where he studied under the landscape painter Carlos de Haes in 1877. In 1879 he moved to Brussels, a defining journey for the artist. Here, he became friends with members of the avant garde Les XX, including painters Frantz Charlet, James Ensor, Rodolphe Wytsman, and Octave Maus (the first owner of the present work), before joining the group himself. Les XX were closely attuned to the 'New Painting', later known as Impressionism, in France. In 1887 Georges Seurat exhibited Un dimanche d’été à l’île de la Grande Jatte at Les XX, and Paul Signac later joined the group. Their influence can be seen in the pointillist technique Regoyos adopted in his España Negra series as well as in his later works.
