The Two Goats (1965)  Prize Ciutat de Barcelona (81 x 100 cm) oil/cloth

With this painting Torrent surprised the jury of the Prize Ciutat de Barcelona 1969. It is a very daring composition, with a path that draws our eyes to a four-posted gate which closes a field of stones where you can hardly see the two goats of the title. The recognizable elements, such as the bare trees, creating a great imbalance, become abstract. Using short brushtrokes and subtle effects of colour, this painting reveals a self-confident artist and a very personal style. Despite all this, this painting has never been exhibited sinve receiving the prize, 38 years ago.
