The Comité Nadal has confirmed the authenticity of this work.
Nadal painted his vibrant marine paintings from the Spanish resorts and marinas of Sitges, near Barcelona, the Costa Brava, and onto the Cote D’Azur, where he often stayed with his long term friend Antoni Clave. He also travelled onto his wife’s native Belgian coast and along the French Northern coast lines, which gave him a different perspective of the sea.
The present work Marins shows the deep ultramarine sea, with a sailor and a group of onlookers enjoying the scene from the quay and along the pier towards the lighthouse.
