Created in 1901, Ramon Casas and Pere Romeu in an Automobile depicts the artist in the driver’s seat of a cherry red convertible accompanied by fellow artist and partner-in-crime, Pere Romeu. The painting was the most prominent work displayed in their legendary Barcelona bar, Els Quatre Gats—a hotspot for their arty peers that was modeled after Le Chat Noir in Paris—and was actually a very 20th century update on an earlier work, in which our same two friends rode a tandem bicycle.
Combining methods of Post-Impressionistic realism and graphic illustration, Casas subtly depicts the feeling of movement through the attitude of his characters and the curved blur of the wheel spokes. Draped in the most luxurious of furs, the pair appear to be on a mission with Casas hunched attentively over the steering wheel. A shiny black shoe puts pedal to the metal, while their canine sidekick stands perched atop a square picnic basket. Where they’re headed? Who knows, but this trio is comin’ in hot with a whole vibe. Frame up this fabulous vignette in your home and you can practically hear the words of the great Regina George: “get in loser, we’re going shopping.”
