The Catalan painter Josep Roca-Sastre (1928-1997) was influenced by Post-Impressionism, Cubism and Surrealism, and was a disciple of painter, draftsman and printmaker, Ramon Rogent (1920-1958). Rogent’s work represented one of the first postwar links with new Catalan art, drawing on Picasso’s influence. After Roca-Sastre graduated in 1954, he was invited to study with Rogent in Paris, setting the scene for a creative phase that informed Cubism. The exhibition explores the relationship and shared creativity of the two artists, and their respective influence on Catalan art in the mid-20th century.
