The Beach at Chipiona

1899. Gouache / tempera on paper. Not on display

A view of Las Canteras Beach in Chipiona with the city’s bell tower in the background, the pebble beach in the foreground and figures walking by the ocean. This work belongs to a series that Jiménez Aranda made in situ for his own pleasure while spending the summer on the coast of Cadiz. Of particular interest are the bluish chromaticism of the sea and boulders, and the verism of the human surroundings captured in the midday light. The artist’s dedication of this work to his friend, Dr. Pedro Ruiz, appears in the lower right corner. This work was donated by Pedro Ruiz Prieto to the now extinct Museo de Arte Moderno in 1908.
