1.cat.12 Santiago Rusiñol, motor del Modernisme

S rusiñol

Santiago Rusiñol és un dels primers modernistes de Catalunya. Un personatge trencador que desafia la burgesia i tot el que, fins aquell moment, està establert. Un revolucionari de l’art que viu per l’art. Pintor, escriptor, dramaturg i activista cultural, Rosiñol és el motor del Modernisme a Catalunya. El seu nét Normand Cinnamond diu: “El meu avi va fer una vida absolutament diferent de la que s’acostumava a fer dintre d’una família burgesa. Una vida sense horaris, sense menjars, una vida una mica de fer en cada moment el que tu consideres que has de fer sense unes regles establertes”.
