A post-impressionist painter, with agile brushstrokes and vibrant colours typical of open air painting. A personal friend of Joaquim Mir, he spent time in Vilanova i la Geltrú and also Montserrat, where he met Emili Grau Sala, with whom he would travel to Paris for the first time. Considered a painter of the Paris school, he travelled to and stayed in the French capital on more than one occasion. He spent much time at the seafront in Sant Feliu, where he also had a studio. From 1941 to 1971 he taught landscapes at the Escola Superior de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi in Barcelona, and he exhibited his entire career at the Sala Parés in Barcelona. In 1988, he was awarded the Creu de Sant Jordi by the Generalitat de Catalunya.
