Santiago Rusiñol - Interior of a Café [1892] on Flickr.The artist and writer Rusiñol (1861 - 1931) was one of the founders of the turn-of-the-century Spanish Modernista movement. He and his colleagues, including the young Pablo Picasso, regularly met for lively discussions in a small Barcelona café. The figures populating the café in this painting, however, appear silent, solitary, and preoccupied with their own thoughts. The dull colours and enclosed space reinforce a sense of isolation.
