Manuel Coronado, 45 x 30 cm, watercolor and chalk on paper. This work is part of a series of portraits of characters such as female figures and harlequins, where cold colors like blue or purple predominate, with some shades of yellow or pink.
This work done in watercolor and chalk is part of a series of portraits, whose characters are female figures and harlequins that are part of his symbolist stage. The painting presents cold tones, from the blue - color that the artist related to the feminine - and the violet, with shades of warmer tones like yellow or pink. The woman is a motif that appears continuously throughout her artistic career, manifesting in all possible stages and showing the viewer the inner world of the character, from different perspectives. The work is in good condition. It presents a wood framed with passepartout of English cardboard, with some marks of use. In the back, we can see two stamps of Ladaria, Mallorcan framing house, so we assume that the work was framed there. It has been opened to investigate, so we have verified that the inner sheet presents the marks of the veins of the wood because of not carrying a barrier paper, which we have added later. Originally the film was glued with adhesive tape, and now presents acid free pH neutral tape placed by us.
