Watercolours by Guillem Colom at the Fundación Barceló

Watercolours by Guillem Colom at the Fundación Barceló
The Barceló Foundation is holding, from November 28, 2000 till January 5, 2001, the exhibition "Aquarel·les del Geòleg Guillem Colom i Casasnovas (1900 - 1993)". The geologist Guillem Colom Casasnovas (Sóller, 1900 - 1993) was a great fan of drawing, illustrating an extensive bibliography about topics of his speciality. Thanks to a Californian painter called Macherferd who used to live in Soller, he investigated deeply into the watercolour techniques. As from 1946 he began to participate in different collective exhibitions.

In the exhibition catalogue, Jaume Ensenyat i Julià writes:: "Art reflects the artist and the watercolours by Guillem Colom are simple, fresh, luminous, Mediterranean. They reflect our light." Foto © RSR: "Retrato de Guillem Colom" de Federico Molina
