Casademont Le Vieux and the Sant Cugat years

2 January — 30 March, 2024

Canals Galeria d´Art wants to remember the prominent presence of this Catalan painter in Sant Cugat, where he lived for a few years and where he painted many places and corners.

Casademont “Le Vieux” (Barcelona 1923-Girona 2007) has been one of the outstanding artists of the 20th century. Internationally recognized and holder of the Cross of Sant Jordi, Chevalier de les Arts, among other distinctions…, he was also a member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi. His fame became international after exhibiting in 1953 at the Cercle Artístic de Bordeaux (France). During the period of constant travel, he spent long periods in Paris, often sharing an apartment with fellow painter Xavier Valls.

The exhibition shows such representative paintings as the Monastery of Sant Cugat. Francesc Casademont has a very personal work with an austere palette and very rich in nuances, focused on the landscapes he knew both here and abroad.
