In 1909 the architect Manuel Joaquim Raspall carried out the design of this shop with the collaboration of artists such as Lluís Bru -who signed his mosaic decoration under the shop sign- and the Buixeras glaziers. The iron work adopts natural forms and provides the framework for the design, both in the upper part and at the side of the doors, and the result is a clear example of integration of the arts. The interior recalls the original business, a fine art supplies shop with painted signs indicating sections on architecture, painting and drawing. The premises are now used by an optician’s.
