    Postmodernist by generation and by attitude, Joaquim Sunyer lived many years of his youth in Paris, where he spent his first stage as a painter. He made his first trip to Paris in 1896, settling in the French capital and frequenting the Bateau-Lavoir, where he met painters from his circle such as Ricard Canals, Manolo Hugué, Casanovas, Pablo Picasso and met the poet Max Jacob. He also contacted Renoir. Due to lack of financial resources, he is forced to change workshops several times: rue Delambre, rue Vercingétorix, Au-Breteuil, rue Ravignan; 35 rue Montaigne and finally, rue du Géneral Henrion Bertrieu, in Neully. At that time his work was characterized by street sketches, with the same themes that he made in oil or pastel, like the one we see in this case: a view of the Luxembourg Gardens at night, with a woman in the foreground, and some figures behind.
