Jove decadent (Després del ball) or Young decadent (After the Ball), 1899. Ramon Casas i Carbó (Spanish, 1866-1932). Oil on canvas. Museo de la Abadía de Montserrat, Barcelona.
For the 1900 Exposition Universelle (1900) in Paris, the Spanish committee chose two of Casas’ full-length oil portraits. In 1902, twelve of his canvasses were installed permanently in the rotunda of the Cercle de Liceu, the exclusive private club associated with Barcelona’s famous opera house.
