In 1932, he made the first of his three visits to Andorra. He arrived by car to Santa Coloma, accompanied by his wife, son, driver and assistant. This oil painting is a good representation of his post-impressionist style. There are three almost parallel areas –the field, the mountain and the sky–, bright and contrasting greens, yellows and blues, movement in the air suggesting wind among the leaves, offering contrast and creating depth, capturing the instant of the work. Without ever having visited Paris, he is an artist who profoundly assimilated the concepts of impressionism and modernity in his brushstrokes, textures and atmospheric effects on nature.
