Francisco Miralles Y Galup

Biography from Anderson Galleries, Inc.

Francisco Miralles Y Gallup began as a student of Ramon Marti y Alsina in Barcelona. After studying at the Beaux Arts in Madrid until 1866, this Spanish painter moved and made Paris his permanent residence until 1897.  He forged commercial relationships with a couple of Parisian dealers, including Enrique Gomez who was responsible for exporting a large quantity of his works to the United States.

He participated in a large range of exhibitions, including the 1866 Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Barcelona, the Salon and the Salon des Artistes Francais in Paris from 1875-1896 and the Salon Pares, Barcelona of 1877.  He won a silver medal at Dieppe in 1875, and another at Angouleme in 1877, and a gold medal at Montpellier in 1885.

In choosing subject matter, Miralles often looked to the bourgeoisie of the Second Empire for inspiration, and from that group, he often chose to paint women, especially fashionable young ladies.
