CERAMICS AND REALISM – Feliu Elias

Feliu Elias (Barcelona, 1878-1948) was a painter in the style of Realism*, a ceramics collector and favourer of the Catalan tradition of ceramic art.

You can see the love for this craft in some of his paintings like the decorative plate hanging on the back-wall in “La galeria/The gallery” (1928).

*Realism or Art Modern (Spain) was a reaction to the beautified art of the Renaissance and the dramatic Romanticism. This art style depicts more realistic, daily life situations and sometimes a less attractive side of people.
