Josep Tapiró y Baró was a Catalan painter active in the late 19th and early 20th century.

He spent the latter part of his life in Morocco, and his watercolor portraits of some of the people there — dressed in their most colorful traditional garb — were quite popular for a time with European and American aficionados of Orientalist art.

  1. Amazing, and the clothing and headwear are beautiful.. they bring a kind of decorative feel to the realism

  2. These are quite astonishing. Thanks for bringing this guy to my attention – I’d never heard of him before, and he deserves to be better known.
