Robert Kemm was, like many other contemporary painters of his time, influenced by the literary movement of ‘costumbrismo’, which describes the customs of Spanish society. The pictorial representation of regional characters was coined mainly by Valeriano Dominguez Bécquer. The paintings of the ‘Costumbristas’ that denote particularly 19th century genre scenes in Spain feature both romantic and realistic style elements.Condition:

Like other painters of his country, including John Philip, Edwin Long and John Bagnold Burgess, the London-born Robert Kemm traveled to Spain, especially to Andalusia.
