The Spanish painter Marià Fortuny was one of the leading painters in Spain at his time. He was born in Catalonia in 1838 and achieved great international renown during his lifetime. He died in 1874 and although his career was rather short due to his early death, it was very successful. His focus was on oriental motifs, but military and genre paintings were also part of his oeuvre.

Fortuny was an orphan at the age of twelve and grew up with his grandparents. His grandfather introduced him to the art world at a young age and showed him how to make wax figures. At 14, Fortuny moved to Barcelona, where he attended the Escola Provincial de Belles Arts. Here he was especially influenced by the lithographs of Paul Gavarni. He soon received a scholarship that allowed him to stay in Rome for two years and study the style of the great masters. These years were formative for the visual artist.

In 1859 he was commissioned by the government of the province of Barcelona to illustrate the Spanish-Moroccan War. Together with General Juan Prim, he set off for Morocco to capture the landscapes and battle scenes during the Moroccan campaign from 1859 to 1860. He began his first monumental work, the Battle of Tangier, during this period. This was followed by trips to Madrid, where he studied mainly Goya. In 1870 the painter moved with his family to Granada. Here he transferred The Battle of Tangier onto a 15-meter wide canvas. For more than ten years he worked on this monumental work of art again and again, but never finished it.

The exotic motifs of Morocco should never let go of the Catalan painter. Fortuny was known for his gentle brushstroke, which is reminiscent of paintings from the rococo period as well as impressionist paintings. Among his most famous works are the paintings "The Moroccan Snake Tamer", "Wedding in the Vicaria in Madrid" and "The Arcadians and the Academics". © Meisterdrucke
