Spain, Madrid, Union and Spanish Phoenix (La Union y el Fenix Espanol), 1912

A monumental ensemble representing Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Abundance and Fortune. This work, dated 1912, was created along with architect Maurice Gras. We note a harsh stylization of the figures imposed by the sponsors, hinting at the pursuit of a natural style which, far from academic, heightens the forms to a strict idealization.
