Rafael Bestard, 54 x 65, oil on canvas. In this work of numerous colors, the artist chooses dark tones that bring him closer to the Fauvist tendency. The brushstroke is sometimes linear and sometimes are strockes of color that create the undefined shapes that characterize this painting. In this painting, the artist reinterprets the Mallorcan landscaping that had taken place in Pollença in the first half of the 20th century.
Rafael Bestard Mas, painter from Pollença, shows us in this work his vision of the Mallorcan coast through an interpretation of shapes and colors close to Fauvism. This painting of 1996 could be a continuation of that Pollensina School that began to develop at the beginning of the 20th century, whose authors presented an extraordinary pictorial quality and could derive many different styles in the same subject. Therefore, we could say that this work is the result of the development of Mallorca's landscape over time, from many different but brilliant points of view. The painting is in a good state of conservation, with a frame that shows some marks over time.
