RAMON ROGENT

May 29 - November 1, 2020
Sala Pere Daura
Curator: Bernat Puigdollers

Ramon Rogent (Barcelona, ​​1920 - Pla-d'Orgon, France, 1958) is, without a doubt, one of the most important painters of the generation of artists that appeared in Catalonia during the Spanish post-war years. The exhibition organized in the Reig Galleries in 1943, together with Fabra, Fin and Vilató, was already an entry of fresh air into the dark and rarefied cultural environment of the post-war period. Rogent’s painting, bright coloured and heiress of the first avant-garde, meant a step forward towards the plastic renovation of Catalan painting. Rogent was, in addition to an excellent painter, a cultural agitator that shook the grey and closed artistic atmosphere of the Franco dictatorship. Unfortunately, a car accident tragically truncated his career when he was still very young. This exhibition at the Montserrat Museum, organized on the occasion of the centenary of his birth, deepens his artistic work and claims his figure, a key piece to understand the arts of this period.
