Remembering Rafael Pujals

On July 12th, died Rafael Pujals i Agustí (Badalona 1943-2021), painter, draftsman and prominent watercolourist.

Although professionally he worked as a surveyor – he studied for three years at the School of Architecture of Barcelona -, he had a very active life as an artist: he was a member of the Group of Watercolorists from Catalonia, the Artistic Circle of Sant Lluc, and the Fine Arts Section of the Museum of Badalona. He exhibited in different Catalan towns and won several prizes, especially in quick painting competitions, and also worked as a teacher of drawing and painting.

The Museum of Badalona preserves a series of his works, including a set he made specifically to illustrate the Roman baths and surrounding spaces of the Roman city of Baetulo, which for many years could be seen exposed in the public in these spaces.
