Blind Man’s Buff

Ca. 1889. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

During his time in Paris, Jiménez Aranda regularly produced tableautins (small, precisely painted works on eighteenth-century themes). The detailed description of the figures here contrasts with a freer approach to the background trees, revealing the artist’s powers as a landscape painter and the influence of French naturalism, which would determine his subsequent evolution.
