Execution of Torrijos and his Companions on the Beach at Malaga

After 1888. Oil on panel.
Room 075

Previously considered a preliminary study, this is in fact an unfinished, reduced-size replica of the painting and an exact reproduction of it. Gisbert had produced other smaller replicas of some of his paintings, including The Communards and The Puritans. Here he reused a panel with another composition, as the X-radiograph shows. The texture of the paint on this support, which differs from that on the canvas, allows for a new appreciation of the work’s pictorial values and of Gisbert’s meticulous brushwork.
