Oil panting on canvas representing the old boats turned into shacks on the beach of Malgrat. Joan Roig i Soler, a landscape artist from the 19th century, was a disciple of Modest Urgell. After traveling through Italy and Andalusia, he specialized in landscapes, with coastal scenes being among his favourites. Roig i Soler portrayed the beaches and coasts of Majorca, Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Tossa, Blanes, Lloret de Mar and other towns on the Costa Brava. Impulsive and vigorous, his paintings reflect this vitality using violent contrasts, bright skyscapes and intense light and colour.
