Biography of jacint espinal alterachs

Draughtsman, painter and watercolourist of the first quarter of the 20th century, born in 1880 Born of very humble family, he had to enter in the House of charity and there with the first letters he learned drawing and decoration. His provisions for these arts were extraordinary. One day Tomás Moragas saw him and he was delighted with the boy and took him under his protection. The artist made him attend to his workshop and enrolled him at the school of Fine Arts where his progress was rapid. He was awarded with the first medal for a drawing of the natural, and in the year 1900 he got a travel bag for Rome where he was some time. When he came back he exhibited in Salón de la Vanguardia ta collection of notes and sketches that caught the attention. He specialized in watercolour painting and produced very valuable works for the looseness and the slenderness of the lines and for the purity and precision of the colour. The Artistic illustration of the year 1902 reproduced one of his watercolours entitled “transition” and other publications reproduced several of his works as well.
