In this other supplement from UH to celebrate the centenary of his birth, Juan Elorduy analyses his work:

According to Eldoruy:

²He followed his own process of creation getting close to the vanguard of the twentieth century²

²His work fits in with that of Spanish expressionism, a feeling of pain coming from the earth.²

 



 

The Consell Insular along with the collaboration of the Town Halls of Mahon, Ciutadella, Palma, Barcelona, the Balearic Government and the Generalitat of Catalunya organise a anthological exhibition The Power of the Colour which tours these cities. In Ciutadella it was visited by more than 10000 people.
