Boys Drawing

1890. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

As on many other occasions, the painter´s sons are his model for this work. In a barely-furnished room, the two brothers have fun together. José, the elder, leans on the table, drawing, while Ignacio fondly rests his hand on his older brother´s back, observing the progress. This scene is an example of the sort of intimate and familiar painting this artist made throughout his life. Of particular note, here, is how he captures the light entering through the open shutters, creating a very suggestive atmosphere. The use of browns as the general tonality is also frequent in many of his works. In 1930, Xavier Lafitte bequeathed this work to the Museum of Modern Art.
