Procession in the Abbey at Tiglieto

1895. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

In 1861 the Galician painter Avendaño was jointly awarded the State travel grant for landscape painting, together with Martín Rico. In the last third of the century he thus lived and worked in Genoa and Liguria. Avendaño favoured a type of naturalistic landscape with a misty, damp atmosphere. He habitually paid close attention to detail in both the background, which here depicts the abbey of Santa Maria alla Croce in Tiglieto, and the foreground, where we see various peasants.
