This landscape artist, a follower of the luminist school, developed his painting style giving absolute prominence to light, softer and more diffuse in nature. He often introduced perspectives with very pronounced and deep diagonal lines that depicted simple and realistic spaces, lending great importance to the material qualities of the elements, land, roads and whitewashed houses. This movement arose in Catalonia, chiefly in Sitges, in the artistic context of the times with various national schools in the US and European countries. In Spain, Valencian luminism was particularly prominent, based around the figure of Joaquín Sorolla.
