The original artist, Julio Romero de Torres (1874-1930) was one of the most famous Spanish artists of what was called the fin de siecle period and is regarded as the absolute master of Andalusian symbolism. His oeuvre has long been associated with popular and folk trends in Spanish painting, but has an identity of its own and has gone from being considered merely commonplace to being hailed as an aesthetic trend of symbolism (adapted from Askart.com).
