Francesc Masriera

Francesc(Francisco) Masriera (1842-1902) was a Spanish painter from Barcelona, although he studied in other European cities. He is considered one of the best portrait artists in that time, especially in Barcelona. He's popular for his oriental themed paintings. 
I've seen few of his paintings in National Museu d'Art of Catalonia in Barcelona and I must say one of his works was really outstanding, it's not like the rest wasn't good but this one really had something in it. Have a look. Don't you think it's wonderful?
