Just as colorful -- and vivid -- as her art were the many travels of Pacita Abad. A true woman of the world both in the literal and figurative sense, Abad’s works were strongly influenced and informed by her sojourns to different corners of the globe as she absorbed the sights and sounds of the various places she visited. She also pioneered the use of the “trapunto” style of painting which involved the use of stitching to add dimension to her canvas.
In 1997, precisely the year of this oil on canvas work, peripatetic Pacita found herself in Barcelona where she soaked in the works of renowned Spanish painters Gaudi, Miro, Picasso, Tapies and Dali.
