Isabel Banal Xifré

My origins have permeated all my work. A rural environment, the bond with nature, a tradition of landscape painting, the Nativity scene... I wanted to be a vet and in the end I studied Fine Arts. It was there, that the object of a table and the white appeared with intensity.
Castellfollit de la Roca, 1963
