On the occasion of the exhibition Pintura espanyola a la Col·lecció Mascort. Visions 1800-1950, the Mascort Foundation publishes a book-catalog of the same name, written by Rosa Maria Creixell, PhD in Art History, professor at the University of Barcelona. All the works have been studied and cataloged, reproduced in color in this edition, and with translations of the introductory texts into English and French.

Leading authors such as Josep Cusachs, Marià Fortuny, Martín Rico, José Navarro, Joaquín Luque Roselló, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Joaquim Mir, Cecilio Pla, among others, are represented through little-known and interesting works, such as Naranjos en la Huerta del Retiro, by Martín Rico in 1875, which stands out for the magnificent capture of light and atmosphere of this historic place in Seville; Copia de dos cabezas de La rendición de Breda de Velázquez de Marià Fortuny, de c. 1860-67, made during his study of classical masters at the Museo del Prado. A third work to highlight would be Maniobra de división by Josep Cusachs, thanks to which the artist won the gold medal at the Berlin International Exhibition in 1891.
