Salvador Gurri

(Tona, 1749 – Barcelona, 1819)

Salvador Gurri i Coromines is the most representative sculptor of the transition from Baroque to Neoclassical ideas. He performed an extensive activity as a sculptor of altarpieces: there are examples of his work in the churches of Sant Antoni in Vilanova i la Geltrú (1770), Santa Maria in Mataró (1778-1804) and Santa Maria del Mar in Barcelona (1771-1782). Gurri also worked in the New Cathedral of Lleida.

In 1777 he was named a member of merit of the Royal Academy of San Fernando of Madrid, and the following year he joined the teaching staff of the School of Fine Arts of the Llotja, where his students included Damià Campeny.
