Ferrer Miró is one of the artists who brought anecdotal realism to Spain after living in Italy in the 1870s. Returning to Barcelona, he began his artistic career in a very active way in a shared studio with Romà Ribera, and accepted the demands of the eager public for artistic manifestations that reflected the habits of the nascent local bourgeoisie.
Here the painter depicts the shop window of the picture and painting gallery, for which he received a gold medal at the 1888 World's Fair.
The success of this work inspired Ferrer Miró to produce other versions with similar themes.
The website of the visual magazine presents this painting, which was created in 1980 in Barcelona with the technique of oil painting, in the dimensions of eight and a half meters by six meters, with its details. This great work is preserved and cared for in the National Art Museum of Catalonia in Spain.
