Description:

Togores was part of the generation of young artists that around 1917 claimed a space of liberty and modernity for the Catalan art, which was at that time dominated by the strict classicist directive of Noucentisme. After a short stay in Paris between 1913 and 1914, in 1919 Togores decides to settle in the French capital. For eleven years since 1921, he has the determined support of Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. Thanks to him, Togores’ paintings are known all over Europe. Printània is an example of the quality of his art works at that period, focused on the human figure, which with its neat and refined shapes get close to the New Objectivity.
