Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Joaquim Sunyer
Joaquim Sunyer (Sitges, 1874–1956) was a Catalan painter often linked to the Noucentisme movement.

He began his artistic education with his uncle, Joaquim Mir, later moving to Barcelona where he studied with such painters as Joaquín Torres García, Isidro Nonell and Joaquin Mir Trinxet. In 1896 he moved to Paris, where he became acquainted with the neo-impressionist movement and worked extensively in the style.

He returned to Spain in 1911, establishing himself in his hometown of Sitges. There he painted numerous landscape paintings in which he highlights his preoccupation with capturing the Mediterranean light through the use of very light colours marking a clear rupture with his darker paintings executed in Paris.

His compositions are noted as an example of balance, though sacrificing technical perfection for the benefit of a more intense evocative power.
