Bros, Bonifaci

Bros, Bonifaci, SH847 detail

Bros’ small self-portrait.

The Catalan farmer Bonifaci Bros rediscovered his neglected and even forgotten childhood hobby of painting after his wife passed away in 1978. Bros was 83 years old at the time. He was given another eight years to fanatically celebrate his artistic talent. His themes: table still lives, landscapes with mountains or sea, a scene depicting women. Not memories of his past life, but sooner a pious tribute to the good life.
