JOSEP RENAU MONTORO (1907-1982) LAS ARENAS BALNEARIO PISCINA LUMINOSA. 1932.
39x27 inches, 99x68 1/2 cm. Graficas Valencia, Sevilla.
Condition A-: minor repaired tears and creases at edges.
A striking, Modernist design for an illuminated swimming pool in which, curiously, the swimming pool itself isn't pictured.
