Mariano Obiols Delgado

Biography from Auctionata

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.
