Josep Roca-Sastre

Throughout his artistic career, Josep Roca-Sastre (Terrassa, 1928-Barcelona,1997) passed through very distinct creative phases, inspired respectively by the poles of Post-Impressionism, Cubism, the affinity for artistic materials of Informalism, and the restrained lyricism of artists like Morandi.
Despite this, his sensitive paintings of modernistic mosaics are what really brought him fame.
Roca-Sastre, grandson of Lluís Muncunill, one of the main architects of Modernism, had his first studio in &#171La Pedrera&#187, the famous house designed by Antoni Gaudí. This allowed his to experience modernism from within. For this reason, he gives a vision of his own, intimate artistic world when he paints his refined interiors, full of mosaic floors, translucent table cloths, or delicate lace curtains - elements that are so typical of bourgeois Catalan houses. Similarly, his exterior views of the rooftops of Barcelona, illuminated by a resplendent sun, show us the view from his workshop in the Ensanche district of Barcelona, heart of modernist splendour.
