Mariano Fortuny y Marzal

A couple of weeks back, I went with my girlfriend to visit the city of Madrid, Food and wine, Family and art, To make the story short, I was walking fast through the monumental space of “El Prado Museum” and I was immediately dazzled by the strength of the brushstroke on this painting: “Naked man in the sun”.


And in the same room I founded a vast body of work that really inspired me to look for more information about the artist.

Children in Japanese Hall

Nude on the Beach at Portici

Fantasy about Fausto


beyond the great painting skills, I really like the way he manages to produce a focus effect on the painting by adding detail to little bits of the composition, I especially like the way he painted the piece about his two child

I also like the way he merged two different scenes to introduce Fantasy into the representation.
