Tackling a bit the Catalan universe, here is about an artist of Barcelona, Ramon Casas i Carbó (1866-1932), known as a portraitist, sketching and painting the intellectual, economic, and political elite of Barcelona, Paris, Madrid, and beyond; he was also known for his paintings of crowd scenes ranging from the audience at a bullfight to the assembly for an execution to rioters in the Barcelona streets (wiki).
