Description:

Following a stay in Paris, where he learned the lesson of Impressionism from the point of view of subject matter and technique, and after exhibiting some Impressionist views he had painted there which were coldly received by critics and the public in Barcelona in 1902, Pidelaserra painted a series of landscapes like this one, in a very personal language in which he combines almost pointillist brushstrokes with a sinuous, diluted treatment of the skies. In view of the rejection these paintings met with, he decided to take a long break in his artistic career.
