Juan Joaquin Agrasot A Rest During the Bullfight Art Print
ABOUT THIS PIECE
Juan Joaquin Agrasot's A Rest During the Bullfight was created in 1881 and is in Museo Carmen Thyssen Malaga. The size of the work is 47 x 31 cm and is made of watercolor on paper.
Entitled Lagartijo con su cuadilla (“Lagartijo and His Team”) when it appeared on the market, this work shows a group of bullfighters engaged in conversation at the edge of the ring waiting for the first bull to be announced; Rafael Molina, “Lagartijo”, is perhaps identifiable on the right of the composition. The figures in the foreground of the painting, some seated on the ledge, are perfect portraits painted from life, probably on the day of the bullfight. Agrasot evidences his knowledge and love of the art of bullfighting in his skilful study of the costume of the bullfighters and also of the picador, who is the space between the barriers.
The Artist: Joaquín Agrasot y Juan (1836 - 1919) was a Spanish painter of the Realistic style who produced many works in the Costumbrismo genre.
