Port Of Barcelona

The history of the Port of Barcelona is closely linked to the history of the city.
The evolution of the port through the centuries to meet the needs of civil society and
Commercial intended to open up to the sea, generating an exchange and develop
commercial transactions , transfers of passengers and goods. Continue processing and
adapting to the needs that affect the continuous change in time for its size and composition.

He is currently one of the ports with the greatest potential for growth as the continent
engine of economic activity in Europe and the Mediterranean. Can boast of being the first
European port , and the fourth in the world in cruise traffic.

The image portrayed port Barcelona we gather in this exhibition corresponds to part of that evolution experience from the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1881 the demolition of the wall Sea offers a new vision of the waterfront and from the late nineteenth century began to plan projects for the construction of the promenade . If the planning required a new layout designed by Ildefons Cerda, port also needed intervention expansion of port infrastructure, linked to the transformation of the city in its economic and social development. The Barcelona Catalan of the industrial revolution, the factories were motor activity land trade port and maritime trade.

During the 1850s there were several proposals for the expansion of the port, the winning project was Josep Rafo and Toulouse, engineer of roads, canals and ports,
which was approved in May 1860. The results were an extension of the
infrastructure that promote industrial growth. Between 1900 and 1918 took
out a complete transformation of the port to suit the vapors imposed
definitely to yachts. A considerable part of the work completed in the first
last decade of the twentieth century, such as placing commercial, customs, or floating dock the general layout of the docks.

Joaquim Terruella Matilla (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1891-1957) embodied in an oil port of Barcelona
image with a certain bucolic inspiration impressionist. The thickness of the brush
accentuated the white tones that draw the sea and the sky, separated by line
horizontal perspective that puts on stage the hill of Montjuic, outlining
geographical limitation to the harbor. It is a similar view also chosen by Dionysus
Baixeras Verdaguer (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1862-1943) watercolor Visit the dam of Alfonso XIII
Floating (Port de Barcelona). The sea is a theme to which attention was
Marina and fishing port and beach scenes since the beginning of his career had
presented shipwrights of the port of Barcelona Exhibition of 1884. The watercolor of Madrid the sample in question is signed and dated by the artist himself, on 16 April 1904.
Executed on the occasion of the visit of King Alfonso XIII, this event represents
the framework of the races. The central bank law composition, attending the event
are insinuated from the simulation of the movement in the crowd. Is the
Likewise representative Ramon Casas had done years before, in a play
the same subject. Another view of the port of Barcelona is offered Joan
Carter Baixas (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1863-1925) with the Fishermen Port of Barcelona (1898) and
group of fishermen in the bay of the port of Barcelona. In other works themed port
present at the exhibition, we can see the transformation of the port of Barcelona.
Ricard Marti Aguilo (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1858-1936), son of the painter Ramon Marti Alsina, in Port Barcelona presents a view of the harbor from Barceloneta, it seems that we see
small beach where fishermen boats and was stuck under the pier
port, where was the old lighthouse, 1772 and today transformed into Clock Tower.

Lluís Graner and frowned. (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1863-1929) to the Port of Barcelona offers
view of the coastline of the city. Behind the masts and chimneys
ships wins the dark mass of the Board of Port Works, a building architect
Julio Valdes and built between 1903 and 1907. In the background are the square and buildings who replaced ousted, in 1837, Convent of San Francisco, and sensed behind
the dark place of the Duke of Medina, the old facade of the former Convent of Mercy,
where since 1848, was installed the headquarters. Baroque facade still wide
original would be drastically renovated and decorated in 1929 by Adolf Florensa
on the occasion of the International Exposition. Graner made several
harbor views, some of which offer more detailed views of the
front of the port and the various docks, the tinglats; even accounted port
nocturnal landscapes. Francesc Gimeno (Tortosa, 1858- Barcelona 1927) during
Llançà lived in a time where he painted landscapes of Port de la Selva and his first
Marine Costa Brava. The Port of Barcelona we see a close-up of boats at
dock, very loose brushwork, where sober colors on the dark water of the harbor, a
Yellow sail is lowered under a gray sky.

Catalan Coast: Look At The Mediterranean Sea

The Catalan coast now attracts thousands of tourists, but also writers, painters,
architects, filmmakers, photographers and musicians drawn to artistic inspiration. In this area an exhibition we look back, we present a series of windows to the sea
Catalan Mediterranean from paintings and drawings from the late nineteenth century to
first half of the twentieth century.

The Catalan coast, deserves special attention Costa Brava, named by Ferran name
Sting in 1908, writer, poet, journalist and politician, who signed with the pseudonym
"Pol" on the Voice of Catalonia. The Costa Brava Girona coast has 22
municipalities ranging from Blanes to Portbou, in its geographical boundaries between
Barcelona and France. Space coasts characterized by coves and cliffs formed by
populations engaged primarily in fishing with a small urban-based
crowded houses. Modest Urgell was one of the precursors to portray pictorially
Costa Brava, but also find other prominent names such as Claudio Lorenzale,
Joaquim Vayreda Mars. Alsina, John Lemon, Nogu.s Xavier, Joaquim Mir and Francesc
Gimeno, among many others. The Costa Brava is a place with a landscape
privileged Cadaqués, which can be defined as a paradise for painters.

One of the favorite topics of European painting has been since the seventeenth century the sea: scenes representing ships, sea waves and beaches; one of the issues with
more production of so-called genre painting.

The oil Jos. Mongrell Torrent (Val.ncia, 1870 - Barcelona, 鈥嬧1937) In the cove of El Ros
(Cadaqués, 1923) see fishermen, practically teenagers, taking to sea
with boats and fishing vessels. Jos. Mongrell had moved to Barcelona in 1913
obtaining a position as professor in the School of Halle. In the picture we see a scene
bathed in reddish light in the evening. A beach scene with a certain load
eroticism hinted in the title, the oil is in the network, in 1930, where a young carefree Llau
between the networks of a young fisherman. In this late work, you can sense a certain
influence of rounded forms of painting noucentista without the author
abandon the typical places lighting tradition Sorolla. The Catalan Joan Llaverias from
Lloret and the Costa Brava, dealt with the same issues Mongrell from a
similar perspective, portraying own traditions and landscapes. It is therefore a
new, thematically, the scenes of sailors, fishermen or boats on the beach that
treat Catalan painting.

The works presented in this exhibition we see a painting of manners, the
which represents an idealized reality, loaded in some a certain painters
mysticism and melancholy, like the work of Joan Llimona (Barcelona, 鈥嬧1860-1926)
Waiting for the return of the fishermen, 1885, where the waves, the dark sky announcing
Storm and the figure of a woman in an attitude of waiting, watching the sea make presage unfortunately. John Lemon frequented the Maresme coast where some captured
Vilassar landscapes. A polite manners that found in other authors such as Dionysius
Baixeras or Ricardo Brugada.
