Family: 🖼 @tesori_italiani ⠀ ⠀ 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 The Orange Seller is an oil on canvas painting (130.2 x 84.5 cm) by Spanish painter Enrique Serra y Auque. Born in 1859 in Barcelona, he began to study painting in his native Catalonia where he had as teachers the outstanding artists Ramón Martín Alsina and Domingo Talarn at the School of Fine Arts of Barcelona. When he was twenty years old in 1879, he left for Rome to continue his training, where he met Mariano Fortuny at the Chigi Academy, where they both cultivated a great friendship. In Rome he did not take long to succeed as an artist in such a way that he came to carry out commissions for Pope Leo XIII. Later, in 1895, he decided to take up residence in Paris, the true artistic capital of Europe. There, in addition to continuing his successful career, his studio served as a meeting point for many young Spanish artists who came to the French capital to start their careers. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛

It is not the most charming picture.. but somebody was willing to make this picture of me while it was still raining.
The last kilometers felt like I had to swim to Santiago de Compostella... there was so much water.. my shoes were soaking wet, my pants, so who cares.. I just couldn't avoid all the little rivers on my way anymore, still I could keep my body dry and stay warm.
It was great to share my walk with you! It felt like you were walking with me.
Thanks for your likes and reactions which I really appreciated.
There are still more walks on my list.. but first I want to spent Christmas at home, love you all, that is what the camino gave me.
Thanks 'Spain' for giving me the feeling that I was welcome and giving me a warm place to sleep each day again! #caminodesantiago#pilgrimage#espana#spain
