Spanish artist, the leading Catalan painter of his day, with an international reputation.
His brief career encompassed works on a variety of subjects common in the art of the period, including the Romantic fascination with Orientalist themes, historicist genre painting, military painting of Spanish colonial expansion, as well as a prescient loosening of brush-stroke and color.
He died somewhat suddenly on November 21, 1874 in Rome, Italy from an attack of tertian ague, or malaria, contracted while painting in the open air at Naples and Portici in the summer of 1874.
