Village street (El carrer del temple)


Village street (El carrer del temple)


de Joan Roig i Soler (Barcelona 1852-1909)

View of Badalona with the Temple street, the house called Can Real and the church of Santa Maria in the background. In the foreground there is a street (now Via Augusta), where there is a potter seller sitting with all the pieces stretched out around in the ground. The scene is situated on a sunny day, with a bright and cloudless sky, typical of the luminist school of Sitges in which the author fits. A note published in El Eco de Badalona on May 12th, 1894 says that the artist has been seen painting in Badalona.
