Biography  
Antonio Fabres y Costa


Born in Barcelona into a family of artists, Fabrés originally devoted his efforts to the art of sculpture.  After winning a scholarship in 1875 to study in Rome, he was soon impressed by the success of several Spanish artists working in the city and particularly by the painting of Mariano Fortuny.  Like Fortuny, the artist subsequently abandoned his chisel for a brush.  Fabrés was captured by the exoticism of Fortuny’s orientalist subjects and established a style which was to dominate his oeuvre during his twelve year stay in Rome.
