The painter Ramon Llovet was born in Barcelona on 8 August 1917. At the age of fourteen, he began studying painting at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de la Lotja and in Atenos (1931-36). Afterwards, Llovet devoted himself to colour and material studies of old masters and supplemented his studies with scientific results from the Max Doerner Institute, Munich. Llovet finds a connection to the avant-garde in Catalonia. He studies Catalonian folk art and engages with great colleagues such as Clavé, Picasso and Miró. Through the Barcelona Group, joint exhibitions became possible in the Sala Gaspar. Llovet's interests - apart from painting - always included poetry and philosophy. Exhibitions at home and abroad. Ramon Llovet lived - after three heart operations - rather withdrawn with his family in the countryside in Guardiola near Barcelona, preoccupied with Far Eastern religions and mystical currents. He produced his prints in a second studio in Barcelona. Despite physical weaknesses, he remained faithful to his painting until his death in 1987. This biography is subject to copyright.
