He was a professor of landscape painting at the Escola de la Llotja, where he taught renowned painters. Among his repertoire of open and static spaces, we recognise the themes of winter, twilight, beaches with boats, solitary planes and rural cemeteries with chapels. In the way he employs his technique, usually oil painting with short, gritty and quick brushstrokes, there is an indication of modernity.
