Llorenç Brunet. War draws 1914-1918
from 09 de October to 11 de November de 2018
Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 5 to 8 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.
The figure of the artist Llorenç Brunet i Forroll (Badalona, 1873-Barcelona, 1939) is, despite its unquestionable value, little known by the audience. He was a prolific sketcher, trained in the Llotja, a pupil of Eusebi Planas and of the lithograph Mercier in Paris, who achieved great recognition thanks to his reports of the different war conflicts that struck Europe in the early 20th century. The exhibition collects, actually, 47 original drawings that Brunet dedicated to First World War, finished just 100 years ago. His talents for drawing, and especially for the cartoon, make the work of this artist, who experienced the conflict in the first line, in a chronicle of exception of one of the most important episodes of European history.
The exhibition will be completed with a series of lectures devoted to the First World War.
