Spanish Tourism Posters, Pre-Civil War

Joseph Morell Macías was born in San Esteve d’en Bas (province of Girona), Spain, in 1899. After his art studies in Seville, and travels abroad to Belgium and France, he returned to Spain to become the greatest influencer of tourist-based posters from the 1920’s up until the Spanish Civil War, with work marked by simple compositions, painterly style, and strong diagonal lines.
