1. Ricardo Anckerman Room
This painter was born in Palma in 1842. His work is an example of Mallorcan eclecticism in the second half of the century. In the Mallorca of his day, he was better known as a history painter and decorator because the aristocratic society preferred historical and mythological subjects to landscapes as they felt represented by them. Anckermann created the Promotion of Painting and Sculpture society and was the director of the Provincial Academy of Fine Arts. He died in Palma in 1907.
3. Antoni Ribas Oliver Room
Born in Palma in 1845, he was a largely self-taught painter that did not follow the rules of any school. He was one of the precursors of Impressionist landscape painting in Mallorca. His brushstrokes were guided by the words of his teacher Juan Mestre: ‘be sincere, imitate nature, let that be your only model’. He is one of the painters that best captured the atmosphere of Palma, especially in its marinas. The journalist Ernest M. Dethorey wrote: ‘Every good family has works by Ribas hanging in their main room.’ He died in 1911.
7. Francisco Rosselló Room
He was born into a well-off family in Palma in 1863. Although he did not produce many paintings, his country landscapes, marinas and city scenes of courtyards and gardens are well known. After travelling to Barcelona with the painters Antonio Gelabert and Joaquim Mir, he came into contact with Catalan Art Nouveau. He admired Santiago Rusiñol. Together with the painter Lorenzo Cerdá, he was responsible for creating the Fine Arts Museum of Mallorca. He was run over by a car when he left his exhibition at the Costa Galleries in 1933.
9. Antonio Gelabert Room
Born in Palma in 1877, his greatness as a painter was not recognised until he died. You can see the influence of Santiago Rusiñol in his paintings. Art Nouveau in style, thanks to the impression left on him by Catalan painters he met in Barcelona, he ended up in the Symbolism and Neo-Impressionism fields after travelling to Paris. He participated in the National Fine Arts Exhibition in Madrid in 1901, which was followed by his individual exhibition in Barcelona at the Parés Gallery. Most noteworthy are his paintings of Palma, especially the ones he did of the Cathedral. ‘We can say without any fear of exaggerating that Gelabert would have been a Cézanne or Manet if the environment he lived in had not suffocated his spiritual dreams with utter materialism, and if this dream spirit had had enough power to escape its vulgar ties,’ wrote Mario Verdaguer in his famous book La ciudad desvanecida (The Vanished City). Gelabert earned his living as a barber, which often depressed him as he couldn’t spend all his time painting. He committed suicide in Deià in 1932.
11. Pascual Calbó Room
The story of this man from Menorca is unique and could be made into a film. Born in 1752 in Menorca, his talent for painting was discovered at a young age and encouraged by the master Giuseppe Chiesa at his school in Mahón. From there, at great personal cost as his family did not have much money, he went to study in Rome and Venice. At the age of 28 he returned to teach in Menorca, which was under English rule at the time. The Count of Cifuentes commissioned portraits from him during this period. Calbó’s wandering spirit led him to travel throughout America where he was confused with a spy and arrested. In Santo Domingo he worked for the King of France. The exoticism of his paintings was much appreciated. In 1790 he returned to Menorca. Five years before he died, paralysis in both his hands stopped him painting. He died at home in 1817.
13. Ramón Nadal Room
This painter was born in Palma in 1913. A student of Lorenzo Cerdà, Francisco Rosselló and Bernareggi, he had relationships with Anglada-Camarasa, Cittadini and Eliseu Maifrén. His landscapes, still lifes and portraits do not adhere to any style. He made the features of Post-Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism and Expressionism his own. He died in 1999.
