On September of last year we held the tenth edition of quick painting “Godella i el seu entorn” (Godella and its surroundings). The Masia Xamandreu was chosen for the contest because of its charm and unique atmosphere.
The Masia Xamandreu was built towards the end of the nineteenth century and used to be the residence of the famous Valencian painter Ignacio Camarlench Pinazo. While staying at the Masia, Ignacio Pinazo painted different pictures, as the group called “The Four Seasons”.
During the celebration of the contest in the farmhouse, it was impossible not to go back in time and surround yourself with the harmony and composition that inspired the painter Pinazo during the nineteenth century.
