Large Post Impressionist Village Scene
This painting is a magnificent credit to Carbonell Massabe's incredible mastery of depicting light. The loose, impressionist style sublimely captures the light breeze dancing on the leaves and the early evening sun shining onto this shaded path, illuminating two young men stopping for a rest on a bench. We sense a wonderful warmth and fondness for this landscape which Carbonell paints with such a strong personal connection.
Francesc Carbonell Massabe was born in Barcelona in 1928. Having had a fascination with painting since he was a child, Carbonell studied at the highly prestigious 'La Llotja' Fine Arts School of Barcelona. Since then, his work has been exhibited widely across the continent, as he has developed into a Master impressionist landscape painter, always focusing on the depiction of light and how it interacts with various objects within the landscape.
