Painted circa 1907, the present work is amongst the first paintings by the artist dedicated to this subject. Standing before a Mediterranean landscape, a gitana holds a bouquet above her head as she dances the flamenco. Depicting the gypsy as a synthesis of brilliant colours and rhythmic forms, Anglada lifts her out of reality to a wholly aesthetic plane. The colours are mesmeric, while the striking rhythmical forms have a musicality about them which is reminiscent of the gypsy sub-culture most nobly embodied by dance and flamenco.
