About Bel Fullana's work
Bel Fullana is often associated with Expressionism. Expressionism can often be considered rather as an international tendency than a coherent art movement, which was particularly significant at the beginning of the twentieth century. It spanned across various fields such as art, literature, music, theatre and architecture. Expressionist artists sought to express emotional experience, rather than physical reality. World renowned Expressionist paintings include Edvard Munch’s The Scream, Wassily Kandinsky’s Der Blaue Reiter, and Egon Schiele’s Sitting Woman with Legs Drawn Up. Expressionism is a complex and vast term that has meant different things at different times. However, when we speak of Expressionist art, we tend to think about the artistic tendency which followed as a reaction to Impressionism in France, or the movement which emerged in Germany and Austria in the early 20th century. The term is so elastic that it can accommodate artists going from Vincent van Gogh to Egon Schiele and Wassily Kandinsky.

Historical Context of Spain
Spain has played a crucial role in the maturation of art in the twentieth century. In the early 1900s, a young Pablo Picasso established a uniquely expressive approach to figuration in the post-Impressionist era, firstly with his Blue then Rose periods, although he was to settle in Paris in 1904. Picasso was also the chief founding member of the Cubist movement, a group in which he was joined by fellow Spaniard Juan Gris. Both Salvador Dali and Joan Miro were leading figures in the Surrealist movement, though they were also lived in France for large parts of their careers. Throughout the twentieth century the political and cultural landscape of Spain was ruled by the totalitarian autocracy of General Franco whose dictatorship ruled the country, in one form or another, from 1939 until 1975, at which time the monarchy was restored to Juan-Carlos I who subsequently implemented substantial reform. The Franco regime was characterised by its brutal anti-communist stance, and the departure of key intellectual and cultural figures that elected not to live under an oppressive regime. The cultural life of the avant-garde suffered significantly, since liberal artistic movements are often known for their leftist leanings. Significant modern and contemporary Spanish artists include Antoni Tapíes, Eduardo Chillida, Eduardo Arroyo, and Manolo Valdes.
