        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1857 - 1940). "Landscape". Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner. Presents label on the back of the Barcelona gallery Artur Ramon. Measurements: 61 x 74 cm; 88 x 102 cm (frame). In this lacustrine landscape furrowed of boats, Meifrèn captures with demonstrated genius the luminous impressions and the movement of fishermen and passers-by, showing a great synthetic capacity in his stroke and palette. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered to be one of the first introducers of the impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, where he was a disciple of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to create romantic landscapes of academic style. After finishing his studies, in 1878, he moved to Paris in order to broaden his artistic knowledge, and there he got to know first hand the "plen air" painting, which would influence him powerfully in his Parisian landscapes of those years. Likewise, in Paris he coincided with the public beginning of impressionism. A year later he made a trip to Italy, during which he visited Naples, Florence, Venice and Rome; there he made contact with the circle of Catalan artists formed by Ramón Tusquets, Arcadio Mas i Fondevila, Enrique Serra, Antonio Fabrés and Joan Llimona, among others. That same year, 1879, he participated in the Regional Exhibition of Valencia, and won a gold medal. Once back in Barcelona, in 1880 he made his individual debut in the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he would continue to exhibit regularly from then on. During these years he was part of the modernist group, and frequented Els Quatre Gats. In 1883 he returned to Paris, where he made numerous drawings and watercolors with views of the city and its cafés, which earned him a warm welcome from French critics and the French public. At the end of the eighties he returned to Barcelona and continued to show his work at the Sala Parés, as well as at the Centro de Acuarelistas. Also, in 1888 he was a member of the jury of the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona. In 1890 he returned for the third time to the French capital, where he participated in the Salon des Beaux-Arts and in the Salon des Indépendants of 1892, together with Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, artists with whom he had formed the Sitges pictorial group a year earlier. In the following years Meifrèn would send his works to numerous official exhibitions and competitions, among them the National Exhibitions of Madrid and Barcelona, and was awarded the third medal at the Paris Universal of 1889 and 1899, silver medal at the Brussels Universal of 1910, grand prize at the Buenos Aires Universal of the same year, medal of honor at the San Francisco International of 1915 and grand prize at the San Diego International of the following year. He also won the Nonell Prize of Barcelona in 1935. In 1952, the Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palacio de la Virreina. His initial landscapes, characterized by an academic and romantic concept, would later evolve towards an impressionist language; abandoning the Roman preciosism, his would be a technique of loose brushstrokes and clear palette, in which the luminous conception approaches symbolist budgets, within the orbit of Modesto Urgell. He is currently represented in the Prado Museum, the National Art Museum of Catalonia, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 – 1940). “Boats on the shore.” Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner. The frame has small tears in the lower margin. Presents restoration. Measurements: 50.5 x 60 cm; 67 x 77 cm (frame). A disciple of Antonio Caba at the La Lonja School in Barcelona, after completing his studies he spent time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of Impressionism and learned about “à plen air” painting. He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and, that same year, obtained the gold medal at the Valencia Regional Exhibition. The following year he made his individual debut at the Parés room in Barcelona, where he will continue to exhibit regularly since then. He was part of the modernist group, and frequented Els Quatre Gats. Although he also dedicated himself to portraiture, Meifrèn was eminently a landscape and marinist. He was one of the discoverers of the pictorial possibilities of Cadaqués, and also used to paint Majorcan landscapes (he was director of the School of Fine Arts of Palma). He made various trips in search of new landscapes, especially to France but also to the Canary Islands, Belgium, Italy and the United States. He held exhibitions in Barcelona, Madrid (1881), Chicago (1893), Paris (1899), Brussels (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), Buenos Aires (1910), Amsterdam (1912) and San Francisco (1915), among many other cities around the world. His style started from the detailed realism that dominated the Catalan school at the end of the 19th century, gradually evolving towards impressionism, a language that would not be completely evident in his work until his final years. Throughout his career he obtained many awards, including the first medals at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Madrid (1906) and in Barcelona (1896), the Nonell prize from Barcelona (1935), the bronze medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition (1888) and the grand prizes at the International Expositions of Buenos Aires (1910) and San Diego (1916). In 1952, the Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held in the Palacio de la Virreina. He is represented in the Prado Museum, the National Art Museum of Catalonia, the Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

        Est: €25,000 - €30,000

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 - 1940). "Cadaqués". Oil on cardboard. Signed in the lower left corner. Attached certificate issued by D. Marçal Barrachina. Work published in colour in "El Paisatgisme a Catalunya", Francesc Fontbona and Ramón Manent, Edicions Destino Barcelona, p. 133. Size: 53.5 x 64.5 cm; 81 x 92.5 cm (frame). Meifrèn's first works located in the Empordà village of Cadaqués date from 1883, specifically at an Art Exhibition at the Ateneu in Barcelona, where he presented, among other works, a "Marina de Cadaqués". A staunch traveller, throughout his successful career Meifrèn travelled all over Europe and much of South America (holding numerous exhibitions in Argentina, Chile and Paraguay). In 1916 he arrived in the United States, where he finally settled in New York. However, despite all this busy life, he always had the reference point of Cadaqués, where he lived with the locals, spent many years in summer, helped the fishermen economically in years of precariousness and, above all, painted. He dedicated countless works to this area, from La Riba to Port Lligat, on paper, panel or canvas. This was his own pleasure and also in response to public demand; like Venice in his day, Cadaqués was a "trademark" for Eliseo Meifrèn. This work shows us a Meifrèn with a mature style, reflected in a purely chromatic and luminous treatment. The loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures shapes and spaces by juxtaposing colours. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style. After completing his studies in 1878, he moved to Paris in order to broaden his artistic knowledge, and there he became acquainted at first hand with painting "à plen air", which was to have a powerful influence on his Parisian landscapes of those years. It was also in Paris that he coincided with the public debut of Impressionism. A year later he made a trip to Italy, during which he visited Naples, Florence, Venice and Rome, where he came into contact with the circle of Catalan artists formed by Ramón Tusquets, Arcadio Mas i Fondevila, Enrique Serra, Antonio Fabrés and Joan Llimona, among others. That same year, 1879, he took part in the Regional Exhibition in Valencia, where he won a gold medal. Back in Barcelona in 1880, he made his individual debut in 1880 at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly from then on. During these years he was a member of the Modernist group and frequented Els Quatre Gats. In 1883 he returned to Paris, where he produced numerous drawings and watercolours with views of the city and its cafés, which earned him a warm reception from the French critics and public. In the late 1980s he returned to Barcelona and continued to show his work at the Sala Parés, as well as at the Centre de Aquarelistes. In 1888 he was also a member of the jury for the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona. In 1890 he returned to the French capital for the third time, where he took part in the Salon des Beaux-Arts and the Salon des Indépendants of 1892, together with Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, artists with whom he had formed the Sitges pictorial group the previous year. In the following years Meifrèn submitted his works to numerous official exhibitions and competitions, including the National Exhibitions of Madrid and Barcelona, and was awarded third medals at the Paris Universal Exhibitions of 1889 and 1899, a silver medal at the Brussels Universal Exhibition of 1910, a grand prize at the Buenos Aires Universal Exhibition of the same year, a medal of honour at the San Francisco International Exhibition of 1915 and a grand prize at the San Diego Exhibition the following year. He also won the Nonell Prize in Barcelona in 1935. In 1952, Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palau de la Virreina. His initial landscapes, characterised by an academic and romantic concept, would later evolve towards an impressionist language; having abandoned Romanesque preciosity, his would be a technique of loose brushstrokes and a clear palette, in which the luminous conception approached symbolist premises, within the orbit of Modesto Urgell. He is currently represented in the Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

        Est: €30,000 - €35,000

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 - 1940). "Marina". Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner. Size: 80 x 100 cm; 100 x 120 cm (frame). The one we present here is a clearly impressionist navy, with a purely chromatic and luminous treatment of the landscape, which leaves aside the meticulous description of the natural model to capture an impression of nature, a purely visual and totally plastic image, in which the loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures forms, spaces and volumes based on juxtaposing colours. The forms are blurred and become purely expressive stains; the light, worked and thought out, acquires a renewed protagonism, and nature takes on a new atmospheric dimension, which goes beyond the pure reproduction of reality. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first to introduce the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style.

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1857 - 1940). "Shipwreck". Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner. With label on the back of Barrachina and Ramoneda. Measurements: 54 x 73 cm; 82 x 101 cm (frame). In this canvas Meifrèn captures an image of romantic heritage, both in the thematic, dramatic and narrative, and in the own way of conceiving the landscape at expressive and formal level. It is a magnificent seascape with a stormy atmosphere, vehement because of the waves crashing violently against each other, among whose foamy crests rises the almost completely collapsed hull of a burning sailing ship that is capsizing, about to be shipwrecked. Meifrèn chooses a moment of tension, prior to the shipwreck, which nevertheless sums up the whole story. A disciple of Antonio Caba at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, after completing his studies he spent some time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of Impressionism and became acquainted with "plen air" painting. He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and that same year he won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition in Valencia.

He held exhibitions in Spain, the United States, France, Belgium, Chile, Argentina and Holland. Throughout his career he won numerous prizes, including the first medals at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Madrid (1906) and Barcelona (1896), the Nonell prize in Barcelona (1935), the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris (1888) and the grand prizes at the International Exhibitions of Buenos Aires (1910) and San Diego (1916).

The mythical Empordà village was one of Meifrèn's favourite places. Throughout his life he made repeated visits to Cadaqués, and despite his successful itineraries around the world, he never lost sight of the peaceful life licked by the Mediterranean. This painting belongs to a period of maturity, in which the mastery of light is remarkable, resulting in accomplished verdigris glazes, in beautiful contrast with the line of whitewashed houses and the vibrant figures swarming around their edges. A disciple of Antonio Caba at the La Lonja School in Barcelona, Meifrèn spent some time in Paris after completing his studies, where he became acquainted with painting "à plen air". He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and that same year won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition in Valencia.

He was one of the discoverers of the pictorial possibilities of Cadaqués, and he also used to paint Mallorcan landscapes (he was director of the School of Fine Arts in Palma). He held exhibitions in Spain, other European countries, the United States and Latin America. Throughout his career he won numerous prizes, including the first medals at the National Fine Arts Exhibitions in Madrid and Barcelona, the Nonell Prize, the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris and the grand prizes at the International Exhibitions of Buenos Aires and San Diego.

That same year, 1879, he took part in the Regional Exhibition in Valencia, where he won a gold medal. Back in Barcelona in 1880, he made his individual debut in 1880 at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly from then on. During these years he was a member of the Modernist group and frequented Els Quatre Gats. In 1883 he returned to Paris, where he produced numerous drawings and watercolours with views of the city and its cafés, which earned him a warm reception from the French critics and public. In the late 1980s he returned to Barcelona and continued to show his work at the Sala Parés, as well as at the Centre de Aquarelistes. In 1888 he was also a member of the jury for the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona. In 1890 he returned to the French capital for the third time, where he took part in the Salon des Beaux-Arts and the Salon des Indépendants of 1892, together with Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, artists with whom he had formed the Sitges pictorial group the previous year. In the following years Meifrèn submitted his works to numerous official exhibitions and competitions, including the National Exhibitions of Madrid and Barcelona, and was awarded third medals at the Paris Universal Exhibitions of 1889 and 1899, a silver medal at the Brussels Universal Exhibition of 1910, a grand prize at the Buenos Aires Universal Exhibition of the same year, a medal of honour at the San Francisco International Exhibition of 1915 and a grand prize at the San Diego Exhibition the following year. He also won the Nonell Prize in Barcelona in 1935. In 1952, Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palau de la Virreina. His initial landscapes, characterised by an academic and romantic concept, would later evolve towards an impressionist language; having abandoned Romanesque preciosity, his would be a technique of loose brushstrokes and a clear palette, in which the luminous conception approached symbolist premises, within the orbit of Modesto Urgell. He is currently represented in the Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

And another label on which we read: "study that appeared in the homage exhibition organised by the Barcelona City Council, and in whose catalogue it appeared with the number 130". Work published in the biography of the artist, written by Mercè Vidal (Ausa, 2011). pg. 400. Size: 18.5 x 24 cm; 41.5 x 46.5 cm (frame). Meifrén was closely linked to Cadaqués. Already in his early exhibition in the Ateneu de Barcelona, in 1883, he included landscapes of the Empordà town. In 1911 he was made an adopted son of the town and the following year, in 1912, he bought a fishermen's house in Port-Lligat. This "Cadaqués Landscape" was probably painted during these years. On this occasion, instead of repeating the much exploited corner of the picturesque bay, he opted for a less iconic setting, with a few houses dotting the land, next to a dirt road. With generous touches of subject matter and a sober palette but full of nuances, he delights us with a symphony of earthy and caramel tones in the evening light. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style. After completing his studies in 1878, he moved to Paris in order to broaden his artistic knowledge, and there he became acquainted at first hand with "plen air" painting, which was to have a powerful influence on his Parisian landscapes of those years. It was also in Paris that he coincided with the public debut of Impressionism. A year later he made a trip to Italy, during which he visited Naples, Florence, Venice and Rome; there he came into contact with the circle of Catalan artists formed by Ramón Tusquets, Arcadio Mas i Fondevila, Enrique Serra, Antonio Fabrés and Joan Llimona, among others.

Eliseo Meifrèn offers us a clearly impressionist work, with a purely chromatic and luminous treatment of the landscape, which leaves aside the meticulous description of the natural model to capture an impression of nature, a purely visual and totally plastic image, in which the loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures forms, spaces and volumes based on juxtaposing colours. The forms are blurred and become purely expressive stains; the light, worked and thought out, acquires a renewed protagonism, and nature takes on a new atmospheric dimension, which goes beyond the pure reproduction of reality.

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 - 1940). "Cadaqués". Oil on cardboard. Signed in the lower left corner. Attached certificate issued by D. Marçal Barrachina. Work published in colour in "El Paisatgisme a Catalunya", Francesc Fontbona and Ramón Manent, Edicions Destino Barcelona, p. 133. Size: 53.5 x 64.5 cm; 81 x 92.5 cm (frame). Meifrèn's first works located in the Empordà village of Cadaqués date from 1883, specifically at an Art Exhibition at the Ateneu in Barcelona, where he presented, among other works, a "Marina de Cadaqués". A staunch traveller, throughout his successful career Meifrèn travelled all over Europe and much of South America (holding numerous exhibitions in Argentina, Chile and Paraguay). In 1916 he arrived in the United States, where he finally settled in New York. However, despite all this busy life, he always had the reference point of Cadaqués, where he lived with the locals, spent many years in summer, helped the fishermen economically in years of precariousness and, above all, painted. He dedicated countless works to this area, from La Riba to Port Lligat, on paper, panel or canvas. This was his own pleasure and also in response to public demand; like Venice in his day, Cadaqués was a "trademark" for Eliseo Meifrèn. This work shows us a Meifrèn with a mature style, reflected in a purely chromatic and luminous treatment. The loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures shapes and spaces by juxtaposing colours. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style.

A disciple of Antonio Caba at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, after finishing his studies he spent some time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of impressionism and became acquainted with "plen air" painting. He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and that same year he won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition in Valencia. The following year he made his individual debut at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly from then on. He was a member of the Modernist group and frequented Els Quatre Gats. Although he was also a portraitist, Meifrèn was eminently a landscape and marine painter. He was one of the discoverers of the pictorial possibilities of Cadaqués, and he also used to paint Mallorcan landscapes (he was director of the School of Fine Arts in Palma). He made several trips in search of new landscapes, especially to France, but also to the Canary Islands, Belgium, Italy and the United States. He held exhibitions in Barcelona, Madrid (1881), Chicago (1893), Paris (1899), Brussels (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), Buenos Aires (1910), Amsterdam (1912) and San Francisco (1915), among many other cities around the world. His style began with the detailed realism that dominated the Catalan school at the end of the 19th century and gradually evolved towards Impressionism, a language that would not be fully evident in his work until his later years. Thus, in his maturity we see a landscape painting with a purely chromatic and luminous treatment, which leaves aside the meticulous description of the real model to capture an impression of nature, a purely visual and purely plastic image, in which the loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures forms and spaces based on the juxtaposition of colours. Throughout his career he won numerous prizes, including the first medals at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Madrid (1906) and Barcelona (1896), the Nonell prize in Barcelona (1935), the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris (1888) and the grand prizes at the International Exhibitions of Buenos Aires (1910) and San Diego (1916). In 1952, Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palacio de la Virreina.

A hermitage appears among the wild vegetation, situating the scene in the valley of a mountain that seems steep, with abrupt rocks. As usual in Meifrén's landscapes, the artist dispensed with anecdotal matters to focus on purely pictorial values, omitting the depiction of figures and secondary elements to concentrate on the agile, impressionistic brushstrokes for which he was known. The trees are reduced to the minimum elements, verging on abstract language, and yet they manage to convey the essence of their condition.

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1857 - 1940). "Coastal View". Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner. Size: 34 x 54 cm; 74 x 80 cm (frame). In this canvas Meifrèn portrays the coast of a possible village of Majorca, showing us some coastal houses captured from a steep corner, a high point that allows the view to be recreated in the serene landscape. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style. After completing his studies in 1878, he moved to Paris in order to broaden his artistic knowledge, and there he became acquainted at first hand with "plen air" painting, which was to have a powerful influence on his Parisian landscapes of those years. It was also in Paris that he coincided with the public debut of Impressionism. A year later he made a trip to Italy, during which he visited Naples, Florence, Venice and Rome, where he came into contact with the circle of Catalan artists formed by Ramón Tusquets, Arcadio Mas i Fondevila, Enrique Serra, Antonio Fabrés and Joan Llimona, among others. That same year, 1879, he took part in the Regional Exhibition in Valencia, where he won a gold medal. Back in Barcelona in 1880, he made his individual debut in 1880 at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly from then on. During these years he was a member of the Modernist group and frequented Els Quatre Gats. In 1883 he returned to Paris, where he produced numerous drawings and watercolours with views of the city and its cafés, which earned him a warm reception from the French critics and public. In the late 1980s he returned to Barcelona and continued to show his work at the Sala Parés, as well as at the Centre de Aquarelistes. In 1888 he was also a member of the jury for the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona. In 1890 he returned to the French capital for the third time, where he took part in the Salon des Beaux-Arts and the Salon des Indépendants of 1892, together with Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, artists with whom he had formed the Sitges pictorial group the previous year. In the following years Meifrèn submitted his works to numerous official exhibitions and competitions, including the National Exhibitions of Madrid and Barcelona, and was awarded third medals at the Paris Universal Exhibitions of 1889 and 1899, a silver medal at the Brussels Universal Exhibition of 1910, a grand prize at the Buenos Aires Universal Exhibition of the same year, a medal of honour at the San Francisco International Exhibition of 1915 and a grand prize at the San Diego Exhibition the following year. He also won the Nonell Prize in Barcelona in 1935. In 1952, Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palau de la Virreina. His initial landscapes, characterised by an academic and romantic concept, would later evolve towards an impressionist language; having abandoned Romanesque preciosity, his would be a technique of loose brushstrokes and a clear palette, in which the luminous conception approached symbolist premises, within the orbit of Modesto Urgell. He is currently represented in the Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

Meifrèn was one of the most notable marine painters of his time, as this coastal landscape of the mythical town of Empordà is ample proof of. The zigzagging dance of the paintbrush captures with precision the inapprehensible vibrations of light on the water, the tireless swirl of cerulean and cobalt blues, whites and reflections of the houses and boats on the sea. Small fishing boats line the shore, and whitewashed white houses frame the composition. The figures are reduced to spots, yet these few touches, skilfully applied, are enough to convey a vivid picture of an autumn morning in Cadaqués.

He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and that same year won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition in Valencia.

A solitary figure contemplates the sunset from the shore. The sunset shines with its last igneous glow. Meifrén subjugates us with this laminated sea of infinite cerulean and saffron cadences. A disciple of Antonio Caba at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, after completing his studies he spent some time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of Impressionism and became acquainted with painting "à plen air". He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and that same year won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition in Valencia.

His style began with the detailed realism that dominated the Catalan school at the end of the 19th century and gradually evolved towards Impressionism, a language that would not be fully evident in his work until his later years. Thus, in his maturity we see a landscape painting with a purely chromatic and luminous treatment, which leaves aside the meticulous description of the real model to capture an impression of nature, a purely visual and purely plastic image, in which the loose, impastoed and precise brushstroke configures forms and spaces based on the juxtaposition of colours. Throughout his career he won numerous prizes, including the first medals at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Madrid (1906) and Barcelona (1896), the Nonell prize in Barcelona (1935), the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris (1888) and the grand prizes at the International Exhibitions of Buenos Aires (1910) and San Diego (1916).

We see in this canvas a dramatic scene, starred by the violence of a turbulent sea, absolutely protagonist, which seems an echo of the ominous sky full of clouds. Meifrén's mastery succeeds in conveying to the viewer the roar of the waves and the wind, the sublime, Romantic impression of someone who contemplates the power of nature and feels powerless in the face of it. The composition is simple, avoiding anecdotal details that could break the atmosphere and the narrative, and the natural elements - the sea and the sky - are the absolute protagonists. The immeasurable dimension of both is nevertheless indicated by the human elements in the composition, the boats whose flagpoles struggle against the wind and the buildings on the quay, dwarfed not only by the distance but also by the monumentality of the water and the sky. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the Impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to produce romantic landscapes of academic style.

Eliseo Meifrén captures in this painting a subjective nature, of romantic influence. He chooses a convulsive stormy day, looking for a cold, twilight and mysterious atmosphere that gives nature a special lyricism. There is a development of spatial depth; the space is perfectly constructed in the foreground, with marked waves that serve as a backdrop to an intermediate plane with large rocks and the representation of a sailboat tossed by the wind; acting as a backdrop, other boats and a blurred and confused scene, as if covered by a dense fog. In the foreground Meifrén's brushstrokes are dense and precise, and he constructs the forms on the basis of rich, varied chromaticism and subtle, carefully studied changes of light and shade. A disciple of Antonio Caba at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts, after completing his studies he spent some time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of Impressionism and became acquainted with "plen air" painting.

In this composition, the coastal landscape is stripped of all superfluous elements. The ochers with golden shades harmonize with iridescent blues and cerulean. A beautiful formal and chromatic purification with which Meifrèn transmits the intense calm of the Mediterranean. A painter of landscapes and seascapes, Eliseo Meifrèn is considered one of the first introducers of the impressionist movement in Catalonia. He began his artistic training at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, where he was a disciple of Antonio Caba and Ramón Martí Alsina, with whom he began to create romantic landscapes of academic style. After finishing his studies, in 1878, he moved to Paris in order to broaden his artistic knowledge, and there he got to know first hand the "plen air" painting, which would influence him powerfully in his Parisian landscapes of those years. Likewise, in Paris he coincided with the public beginning of impressionism. A year later he made a trip to Italy, during which he visited Naples, Florence, Venice and Rome; there he made contact with the circle of Catalan artists formed by Ramón Tusquets, Arcadio Mas i Fondevila, Enrique Serra, Antonio Fabrés and Joan Llimona, among others. That same year, 1879, he participated in the Regional Exhibition of Valencia, and won a gold medal. Once back in Barcelona, in 1880 he made his individual debut in the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly since then. During these years he was part of the modernist group, and frequented Els Quatre Gats. In 1883 he returned to Paris, where he made numerous drawings and watercolors with views of the city and its cafés, which earned him a warm welcome from French critics and the French public. At the end of the eighties he returned to Barcelona and continued to show his work at the Sala Parés, as well as at the Centro de Acuarelistas. Also, in 1888 he was a member of the jury of the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona. In 1890 he returned for the third time to the French capital, where he participated in the Salon des Beaux-Arts and in the Salon des Indépendants of 1892, together with Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, artists with whom he had formed the Sitges pictorial group a year earlier. In the following years Meifrèn would send his works to numerous official exhibitions and competitions, among them the National Exhibitions of Madrid and Barcelona, and was awarded the third medal at the Paris Universal of 1889 and 1899, silver medal at the Brussels Universal of 1910, grand prize at the Buenos Aires Universal of the same year, medal of honor at the San Francisco International of 1915 and grand prize at the San Diego International of the following year. He also won the Nonell Prize of Barcelona in 1935. In 1952, the Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palacio de la Virreina. His initial landscapes, characterized by an academic and romantic concept, would later evolve towards an impressionist language; abandoning the Roman preciosism, his would be a technique of loose brushstrokes and clear palette, in which the luminous conception approaches symbolist budgets, within the orbit of Modesto Urgell. He is currently represented in the Prado Museum, the National Art Museum of Catalonia, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 - 1940). "Port of Llançà", ca. 1930

        Est: €12,000 - €15,000

        ELISEO MEIFRÈN ROIG (Barcelona, 1859 - 1940). "Port of Llançà", ca. 1930. Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower right corner and titled on the back. Provenance: Private collection, Girona. Bibliography: Vidal Solé, Mercè, edit. AUSA, Sabadell 1991 - page 11 Lam. 636. Measurements: 70 x 58 cm; 87 x 75 cm (frame). Meifrén, in spite of being a tireless traveler and traveling all over Europe and America, where he would finally fix his residence, always had the reference of the Ampurdà, as much of Cadaqués as Llançà and, in general, the steep Costa Brava, in its bordering part with France. Here, the port of Llançà is reduced to a synthesis of springtime impressions, with its whitewashed houses and the calm waters of the Mediterranean. With a bold and quick brushstroke, although subjected to a studied palette of light tones, with deep plastic wisdom, he induces a self-absorbed contemplation. A disciple of Antonio Caba at the La Lonja School in Barcelona, after finishing his studies he spent some time in Paris, where he coincided with the public beginning of impressionism and became acquainted with painting "à plen air". He returned to Barcelona in 1879 and, that same year, he won the gold medal at the Regional Exhibition of Valencia. The following year he made his individual debut at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, where he continued to exhibit regularly from then on. He was part of the modernist group, and frequented Els Quatre Gats. Although he also dedicated himself to portraiture, Meifrèn was eminently a landscape and marine painter. He was one of the discoverers of the pictorial possibilities of Cadaqués, and he also used to paint Mallorcan landscapes (he was director of the School of Fine Arts in Palma). He made several trips in search of new landscapes, especially to France but also to the Canary Islands, Belgium, Italy and the United States. He held exhibitions in Barcelona, Madrid (1881), Chicago (1893), Paris (1899), Brussels (1910), Santiago de Chile (1910), Buenos Aires (1910), Amsterdam (1912) and San Francisco (1915), among many other cities around the world. His style began with the detailed realism that dominated the Catalan school at the end of the 19th century, and gradually evolved towards impressionism, a language that would not be fully evident in his work until his later years. Throughout his career he won a multitude of awards, including the first medals at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Madrid (1906) and Barcelona (1896), the Nonell prize in Barcelona (1935), the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris (1888) and the grand prizes at the International Exhibitions of Buenos Aires (1910) and San Diego (1916). In 1952, the Barcelona City Council dedicated a retrospective exhibition to him, held at the Palacio de la Virreina. He is represented in the Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, among many others.

We are in front of a characteristic composition of Meifrén, master of the genre of the seascapes, in which he melts sky and sea in a sublime way, delving into layers and layers of atmosphere that allows our look to escape towards the distance. The reflections of the water and the cottony sky harmonise in silver-coloured cadences, in which the birds flying over the solitary coast are also imbued.
