Pinazo and the charms of the beach
Ignacio Pinazo was one of the best European painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the creator of a modern, experimental oeuvre characterised by its markedly free technique. He frequently focused on a new type of genre scene, of which particularly notable examples are his numerous beach scenes, some of which consist of little more than rapid sketches of a passing moment of sunlight. All of them are, however, highly expressive and characterised by impressive and striking effects of light and atmosphere.
