Large Landscape (Aragon)

1884. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

A landscape of the barren plains of Aragon, where the absence of vegetation makes rock the protagonist and the element used to build the painting. From the boulders in the foreground to the mountains in the background, the landscape is based on a panoramic and monumental sense, with a sober composition far from any artifice. The work is an example of this artist´s capacity in the genre of landscape painting. It also reveals his debts to other painters, including his friend, Antonio Muñoz Degrain. The very vivid colors, rooted in Valencian painting; the grandiosity of the chosen vista and the modern technique employed here, along with the decorative concept with which this work was undertaken, make it one of this artist´s finest landscapes.
