         From de journey Torrent made to the Basque Country in 1958 this painting of large format stands out the most, it reminds us ofthe mural style of that period. The composition is made up of three levels; the first with two sailors and a rowing boat on a ramp; the second, central one with a tangle of steam boats with their canvases and chimneys and finally the mountains and overcast sky. The exellent estructure of the drawing allows him to use conflicting colours with tiny and free strokes which draw the eye to the painting following its music
