Anselmo Guinea y Ugalde

Anselmo Guinea y Ugalde (1854 – 1906) was a Spanish (Basque) painter.
 Born in Bilbao, he began his studies in Madrid, attending the workshop Federico de Madrazo . Upon returning in 1876 to his hometown, he started working at the School of Arts and Crafts, and kept his position until his death.
In 1890 he traveled in the company of Manuel Losada to Paris, attending classes at the Academy Gerveix, where he got in touch with impressionist currents that were strong in the French capital. In Rome he completed his training and, from there, presented works assiduously to the National Exhibition of Fine Arts.
Painter, watercolourist, muralist, Anselmo Guinea was one of the Spanish pioneers of the new styles that were developed abroad. He also highlighted as a painter of stained glass.
