Bagaria seen by Ramon Casas (MNAC).

Lluis Bagaria i Bou (Barcelona, 1882 - Havana, 1940) one of most important Spanish caricaturists in the first half of the 20th century. His drawings, in a synthetic and decorative style, were published in the most important journals of Spain, including L'Esquella de la Torratxa and ¡Cu-Cut![1] between 1906 and 1940.

He was born in Barcelona, but it was in Madrid where he achieved great popularity and fame. He published in the journal El Sol[disambiguation needed] and drew the covers of España magazine. His caricatures against fascism during the war provoked his exile to Paris and into Cuba.
