I spy......Laureano Barrau

This week, I spy Spanish impressionist painter Laureano Barrau (1863-1957).



I came across him by chance here.


And it wasn't too easy finding his biography.


He was born in Barcelona and studied in his native city, Madrid  and Paris.


When he was 47, he came to the island of Ibiza.


Captivated by it's charm and local colour, he and his wife decided to make it their home.


They settled in the town of Santa Eulala del Rio.


Where he lived to the ripe old age of 94.


The Ibiza period is considered his finest-


as it is full of light and colour.
