Biography of Pere Casas Abarca (Barcelona, 1875 - 1958)

He will study law but his love for art will lead him to take classes at the Barcelona plot, where he will begin as a cartoonist, painter and sculptor. In the beginning he will practice photography as support in his compositions and pictorial nudes. From 1903 he will publish several series of allegorical photographic postcards titled bucólicas, místicas, modernistas, fantasías, orientales and sensuales. Within an artistic and pictorial photography, he will apply it to the areas of modernist advertising, poster design and book illustration.

In 1901 he will be appointed artistic director of the Spanish-American commercial magazine by José Puigdollers, later called Mercury at his initiative. In 1903 he will travel with Puigdollers in the area of the Catalan Pyrenees and the photographs taken during that trip will be published in the work Por los pirineos, impresiones de un viaje.

Throughout his life he will hold various positions related to art and culture, such as the presidency of the real círculo artístico de Barcelona and the Sociedad de Amigos de los Museos, he will be a corresponding academic at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid and at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de Santa Isabel de Hungría in Seville. As an artist, he will exhibit his work in various exhibitions of the time and take part in numerous competitions. Some of his photographic works are preserved in the collection of the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC).
