CARLOS NADAL Spanish, 1917 - 1998 OSTENDE signed & dated Nadal 77 (lower right) signed again, titled & dated OSTENDE, Bélgica 15X7-1976, Nadal oil on canvas 25-3/4 X 32 inches (65 X 81 cm.) framed: 33-1/2 X 39-3/4 inches (84.5 X 100.5 cm.) PROVENANCE Private Collection, Barcelona EXHIBITED Actual Arte Contemporáneo, Madrid 14.10.2004 - 13.11.2004 Carlos Nadal was born in Paris in 1917, in 1921 with four years he moved with his family to Barcelona. It is formed at the School of La Lonja. In 1935 he won three awards: the one of the Watercolors Association of Barcelona, the Mural Composition Count Lavern and the Masriera prize. In 1936 he received a scholarship from the Barcelona City Council, thanks to which he was able to enter the Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts. He exhibited for the first time in a collective exhibition at the Dalmau gallery in 1941. In 1944 he made his first individual show at the La Pinacoteca room in Barcelona. In 1946, the City Council of the city of Barcelona granted him a scholarship to continue his information in Paris at L´École des Beaux Arts. In the French capital he participated in the halls of Autumn. In 1948 he married the Belgian sculpture Flore Zoe Jovi and moved to live in Belgium. Here, as he confessed, he discovered the effects of light on painting and the use of color that would already be a distinctive sign in his work. The influence of the Fauve was remarkable. They were a few years of continuous successes and excessive activity, exhibited in Belgium, France, Spain, Amsterdan and the United States. His subjects were very varied; beaches, urban landscape, natural landscape, seascapes, etc. In 1954 he exhibited with great success Kunsterein Düsseldorf and at the Royal Academy in London, and won the painting prize at the International SPA Contest. This same year he meets Picasso on the Côte d'Azur and begins a great friendship. This work by Ostende, this beautiful coastal town in Belgium, is already in full pictorial muteness. The ease of its graphics that arises independently of the spots of color, gives life to this Belgian village. Carlos Nadal shows us the way to the sea in an intuitive and innocent way as in the stories, which seduces us. The desired sea is barely seen, but intuited, through the cheerful colors of the beach huts that are lost with the nearby villas. A young sailor runs to his to do and the ice cream cart returns that near and everyday moment. The horizon fiddles with gray, white and bluish flashes, and a symphony of greens outlines two large trees.
