Settled in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century, Ramon Pichot (Barcelona, 1871 - Paris, 1925), who had worked in Barcelona with Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Joaquim Mir and Isidre Nonell, lived in the Bohemian and artistic environment of Montmartre. The initiatory journey to Paris was frequent among many artists, but Pichot went there to stay, and died there. In Paris he would become integrated in a colony of Catalan and Spanish artists and intellectuals, he would get to know and received influences of the post-impressionist and Fauvist artistic trends, and he participated in numerous international events, such as the show of the scandal of the fauves, and made contact with dealers and merchants.

He lived at the epicentre of international art of the time and was surrounded by notable figures from the Parisian cultural world such as Pablo Picasso or Guillaume Apollinaire. He was one of the few Spaniards to portray the suffering of the First World War.

His work evolved from the initial Modernism to the Decorativism of the second decade of the 20th century, being characterised especially for the treatment and the pre-eminence of colour. Three settings would mark him throughout his artistic trajectory: Barcelona, Paris and Cadaqués, and, thematically, he would move between the scenarios of gender, portraits, the landscape of Cadaqués and Hispanic quaintness.
