Gustave Charles Bacarisas was a Gibraltar born artist, active in the late 19th and early 20th century. Bacarisas travelled extensively, painting in Italy, England, Argentina and Morocco before settling in Seville around 1915. In Seville Bacarisas established his own studio, which was visited by the Queen Victoria of Spain. Bacarisas proceeded to be awarded with gold medals and received commissions for esteemed projects, such as a design for the Royal Pavilion in Seville. In Bacarisas’s later life he continued his travels in England and Spain, fulfilling design commissions in London and Madrid.
