The 19th century witnessed the emergence of the Spanish bourgeoisie taking their summer holidays by the sea, at a beach or spa resort, that combined health, recreation and social life. The Spanish beaches were filled with changing huts and sunbathing chairs, walkers in their fashionable clothes stylishly dressed parents sitting under umbrellas watching their children swim and many other novel phenomena that contemporary artists immortalized.
Karla Darocas will highlight the Seville artist Gonzalo Bilbao (1860-1938), a painter of Spanish traditions in the Seville school style. His success came by combining Andalucian elements related to customs, regionalism, and symbolism.
