Anglada Camarasa - Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa

Anglada Camarasa

Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa (1872 – 1959) was a Spanish painter. Born in Barcelona, he studied there at the Llotja School. His early work had the clear academic imprint of his teacher, Modest Urgell. In 1894, he moved to Paris where he adopted a more personal style, after that of Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec, with their depictions of nocturnal and interior subjects. But his work was also marked by the intense colors which presaged the arrival of Fauvism. Lively brushwork reveals strong Oriental and Arabic influences. Allied with the Vienna Secession movement, his decorative style draws comparison to Gustav Klimt. One of his most important works is a portrait of Sonia Klamery. He died in Pollença, on the island of Majorca.
