"De Riquer was Spain's most successful exponent of the Art Nouveau style, and this poster for the Third Barcelona Exhibition of Fine and Industrial Arts to be held in 1896 is a good example of it. The two woman, one with palette and statue, the other with chalice, represent art and industry" (Phillips III, 577)

"The 'modernist' poster was essentially of French inspiration: it's principal protagonist, De Riquer, had lived in Paris and found his models there. He was very much inspired by Grasset and Mucha whose ornamental style and mosaic background he adopted. His colours are harmonious and delicate" (Weill p.82)
