Nota del catálogo

With the outbreak of the First World War, Anglada-Camarasa left Paris for Mallorca. Executed circa 1925 -30, the present scene is a far cry from his charged Parisian night scenes; and yet the radical modern style he developed there - the use of chromatic experimentation, radiant colours and thick impasto - is still very much in evidence.

Referencing the Japanese prints the artist had certainly seen in Paris, the present work depicts that wonderful time of the year when, between the end of January and the beginning of February, Mallorcan almond trees start blossoming, covering the island with stunning white flowers.

Despite Anglada-Camarasa's love of tranquillity and the purity of life that he so relished in Mallorca, the 1920s were a period of intense international activity for him. Following a highly successful exhibition in Buenos Aires in 1924, a group of his most important works were exhibited in an exhibition that travelled to Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
