Francesc Miralles i Galaup, Boating (1890)
I realise that this is something I’ve not done as much before, this ekphrastic spell I’m under. No matter. I mean, how the hell am I supposed to find material to write about for a whole month, right? So don’t laugh. I have to keep making stuff up. It’s Day 5 of the July writing challenge. Today’s artist is Catalonian, born in Barcelona and lived there for the most part except for his formative years in Paris. In fact this painting is said to be his tribute to Manet’s scandalous Luncheon on the Grass.
