Mariano Obiols Delgado
(1860 - 1911)
Mariano Obiols Delgado was active/lived in Spain. Mariano Obiols Delgado is known for paintings.
In his early years, Manuel or Mariano Obiols Delgado was a disciple of
Martí Alsina, in whose studio he painted landscapes with figures. He
later moved to Paris, where he painted ‘La Porte Saint-Denis’ which was
celebrated by the Parisian critics.
In 1890, he moved to Seville,
specializing in Andalusian genre painting. He worked as an illustrator
for various magazines. In a second stay in Paris, he painted cityscapes
of the Quarter Latin and the Montmartre and some genre scenes in the
Bois de Boulogne.
However, it is especially Delgado’s Andalusian work
for which he is known today. The works almost always depict figures in
landscapes that are captured especially in Seville. In these works he
approaches the style of Baldomero Galofré, who he met along with other
genre painters in Seville, including García Ramos, García Rodriguez and
Jiménez Aranda. Obiols Delgado signed mostly with ‘M.O. Delgado’ and
painted on canvas and cardboard.
