The Corpus Christi Procession by Ramon Casas


With startling photographic clarity, Ramon Casas paints a historic moment.
Ramon Casas (1866-1932), "The Corpus Christi Procession
Leaving the Church of Santa Maria," (Barcelona, 115.5 x 196 cm).
The scene takes place in 1896, just before an anarchist attacked the procession with a bomb, killing twelve people and spreading panic in the city.

Here's a detail of the painting, showing the individual character of each the figures and the soft edges at the base of the figures.

You are right about the photographic clarity. What strikes me is how it is achieved without photographic detail.The select details and edge control is magnificent. Thanks for sharing
