On the Terrace

Signed "Antonio Torres" (lower left)
Oil on canvas

Antonio Torres Fuster deftly channels the artistry and spirit of the Pre-Raphaelites in this stunning oil on canvas. His work is characterized by depictions of beautiful women in opulent dress and relaxed poses, reminiscent of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Everett Millais. In this stunning composition, a young woman is seated on a terrace, gazing thoughtfully into the distance of a lush landscape. Torres-Fuster’s vivid and colorful depiction of the woman, combined with his beautiful tones and textures gives this work a depth and luminosity that is truly spectacular.

Torres Fuster began his training at the Ateneu Tarraconense de la Classe Obrera, and completed it at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid. Though he also composed landscapes, he stood out in particular for his paintings of typically Spanish dancers and singers. The art historian Francesc Fontbona observes that his paintings depict an ideal of feminine beauty close to modernist symbolism, and it is these works that are most highly collectible and sought after today.
