Title: Vista del port de Barcelona

Object date: c. 1905

Author: Florián

Technique and material: oil on canvas.


Oil on canvas from approximately 1905, showing an industrial port where sail and steamships coexist and the changes from the turn of the century can begin to be seen. The technological changes are not only visible on the ships, with sail power being replaced by mechanical propulsion, but also in how the port operates, with steam cranes beginning to replace manual transportation.
