Opening April 10th
Lagrimas de San Lorenzo is the popular name of the Perseids in Spain, a meteor shower related to the constellation of Perseus in the summer of the Northern Hemisphere. It is a sensual painting and the most melancholic of this series.
It is based on the triangular composition where the central figure or scene is placed inside a triangle, in order to give stability to the image. In the Renaissance, the triangle marked the limits between the important and the secondary.
This painting in turn has another triangle superimposed in perspective (Cats)
