About the incoming exhibition at L’Hermitage now. According to them: “The exhibition concentrates on the works of his maturity, created during the last thirty years of his life in the Majorcan workshop where the great master lived from 1956 until his death 1983.”

The exhibition will follow chronologically the work of the artist but also divide the collection by themes. It will be the final part of the artist work before his death, so at that period he is accomplished as an artist and as a man.

The 60’s and the 70’s were populated with strong and bright colours. Birds, women or even landscapes were important subjects for the artist.
