About

Francisco Miralles was born in Valencia and grew up in Barcelona where he received his first artistic training under Ramon Marti Alsina. At the age of fifteen he travelled to Paris for the first time and moved there three years later, remaining for many years. In Paris he got to know Ignacio Zuloaga, Santiago Rusinol and Enrique Granados and worked in the studio of Arturo Canela, which was at that time a meeting place for Catalan artists in Paris. In due course Miralles met the prestigious art dealer Adolphe Goupil, who was also the agent for Boldini, Gérôme and Bourguerau whose reputations he had helped establish. Goupil began to commission paintings from Miralles and his talent was quickly recognised and he became avidly collected. Many of his paintings were being sold before they were finished and a large number were bought by collectors, particularly in America. Miralles exhibited regularly at the Paris Salons where he enjoyed considerable success and at the Sala Pares in Barcelona and numerous international exhibitions in London, Berlin and America. A young lady with a garland of flowers is a fine example of Miralles work and depicts a beautiful young lady in a blue dress with a garland of flowers on her lap. The influence of Manet is evident in the bold use of colour and the spontaneous and lively brushwork. Today Miralles work can be found in the Museu d’Art Modern de Barcelona, Musée Carnavalet, Paris.
