PINAZO MUSEUM HOUSE
Pinazo was born in 1849. Of humble origins, he worked in various trades (silversmith, hatter and roofer), from which he learned the skills in the use of materials.
In 1864 he entered the San Carlos School of Fine Arts in Valencia, where he was a pupil of José Fernández Olmos. He spent a few years in Italy, where he learned and developed his style from realism, an academy painting, canonical and correct, to impressionism and naturalism, with a pre-eminence of colour over form.
Free and dense brushstrokes denote the personal growth of an artist who evolved his style towards more casual forms.
In the eighties of the 19th century, he returned to Valencia and went back to the School of Fine Arts, but to work as a teacher. He chose Godella as his residence to spend the rest of his days. Pinazo used Godella for inspiration and to develop his most personal style, and it was here that he produced the bulk of his works. We know the landscapes of the “huerta” (green garden and orchard) at that time from him, we can look at Godella through the works he created during his long stay.
Thanks to this decision, a large part of the legacy that Pinazo left us is preserved.
In this House-Museum you can enjoy the works of Ignacio Pinazo Camarlench (1846-1916) and his sons, the painter José Pinazo Martínez (1879-1933) and the sculptor Ignacio Pinazo Martínez (1883-1970).
