Fortuny Master of Light

Published on May 9, 2022

Mariano Fortuny y Marsal was born in the Catalan city of Reus. During a prolific but brief career—cut short by malaria—he became the most internationally acclaimed Spanish artist thanks in part due to his extensive travel and the popularity of his prints. His oil paintings and watercolors were a source of inspiration to later artists such as Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida and Pablo Picasso, while his graphic work, most notably in etching, continued a tradition in keeping with Rembrandt van Rijn, Jusepe de Ribera, and Francisco Goya.

The exhibition runs from Jan 22 - July 17, 2022 at San Diego Museum of Art, 1450 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92102.
