Rural Spain has villages and very pictorial landscapes, it is very gratifying to take the easel and colors and walk their paths.

Honfleur is a commune in the Calvados department in northwestern France. It is located on the southern bank of the estuary of the Seine across from le Havre and very close to the exit of the Pont de Normandie. Its inhabitants are called Honfleurais. It is especially known for its old port, characterized by its houses with slate-covered frontages, painted many times by artists, including in particular Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin, Claude Monet and Johan Jongkind, forming the école de Honfleur (Honfleur school) which contributed to the appearance of the Impressionist movement.

Biography
 

 
Josep Cruanas was born in 1942 in Maia de Montcal - Girona, Catalonia ( Spain )
 
During the decade of the seventies he is interested in all the isms of the moment, that is, those which were close to him like abstraction, surrealism and expressionism. The fact that he maintains relations with artists like Frederic Lloveras induces him to move away from these tendencies inclining towards a more personal impressionism, like Lloveras himself, and tends to a more geometric and graphic style of painting, evidently without obviating the colour. When Jordi Rodriguez Amat is referring to Cruanas' beginnings he points out that "he embraces a very personal representation of distorted urban spaces" where one observes even collapsed buildings, factories etc. Therefore, it is evident that his interest in urban spaces reveals itself since the very beginning and still is one of the principal characteristics in his works.
 
Now the moment has come to open up to the exterior and, therefore, he starts travelling throughout Europe. This allows him to get to know different places, unknown to him up to now, and represents new ways of understanding and captivating light and colour. He accompanies Lloveras on many of these journeys. Cruanas remembers discovering "northern landscapes, the range of grey shades and the lead-coloured skies" when he first visited London.
 
But it is not until the 80s that he will find his own pictorial space, because until then he was more interested in the isms that predominated the 20th century like abstraction, surrealism and expressionism. This can be verified when he represents the urban landscapes of different port and maritime cities, especially in the north of Europe, product of his travelling spirit which allows him to observe, as many times affirmed, what only the artist himself is able to grasp what for the rest of the [...]
