Lluis Bagaria i Bou (Barcelona, 1882 – Havana, 1940) one of the 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 and drew the covers of España (es) magazine. His caricatures against fascism during the war provoked his exile to Paris and into Cuba.
