This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A Spanish painter and art professor, Emilio Sala Y Frances moved to Valencia as a youth where he studied painting with his cousin, Plácido Francés at the San Carlos Academy.  Then settling in Madrid, he became very interested in the painting of Diego Velazquez (1599-1660) and Eduardo Rosales (1836-1873).

Become in exhibitor in 1871 at the National Arts Exhibitions, he won first-place medals in 1878 and 1881.  He had begun his career as a history painter, but in 1890 began to change to the emotional expression of mannerism, influenced by El Greco (1541-1614), and to landscapes, illustrations, and fashionable portraiture.  He also did architectural decoration on Madrid palaces and ceilings of the Cantina Americana and Café de Fornos. 

By 1889, he had moved to Paris to serve on the board of San Fernando Academy.  In the Universal exhibition in Paris of 1889, he won a second medal.  Two years later he received the Gold Medal from the Berlin Exhibition, and in 1899, he was awarded the Gran Cruz de la Orden de Isabel la Catolica in the 1899 Universal Exhibition.  In 1885, he had received the Saint Michael's Cross Award in Munich.

Emilio Sala Y Frances died on April 14, 1910, while working on murals for the Casino de Madrid at the San Fernando Art School, where from 1906 he had occuied the Chair of Theory and Aesthetics of Color.
