Originality. Wit. Ingenuity.
Luis Bagaría began his artistic career as a painter but soon moved on to caricatures, quickly becoming of the most important figures in this artistic discipline in the first half of the 20th century.
Trained within the context of Catalan modernism, in 1912 he moved to Madrid where he began to collaborate with the publications La Tribuna, the weekly journal España and the daily paper El Sol, gaining significant notoriety as an artist. Acutely aware of the influence of the press as a form of mass communication, Bagaría brought his brand of humor to the political arena. With his particular drawing style and great ability to summarize events, through his caricatures Bagaría encourages us to reflect on a fairer world.
