Brief Biography-Antonio Maria Fabrés y Costa was a Spanish painter and sculptor. He studied at the Llotja School, or Escuela de la Lonja, in his home city of Barcelona. In 1875, he earned a scholarship to study in Rome. He spent ten years in Italy, there he established himself as a watercolourist and collaborated with a group of realist painters, led by the Catalonian artist Marià Fortuny. From 1894 to 1902, he lived in Paris where he set up a successful studio. The President of Mexico, Porfirio Diaz, summoned him in 1903, to fill the post of Inspector General of Fine Arts at the Academy of San Carlos.
