NOTE:

Joaquin Agrasot y Juan began his artistic training in his home town of Orihuela. The young artist received a grant from the Diputacion Provincial de Alicante in order to study at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos de Valencia. He also received a stipend to study in Rome at the Accademia de via Murgatta Giggi where he met Eduardo Rosales, Jose Casado del Alisal and Mariano Fortuny. It was Fortuny who made the greatest impression upon the young artist, and he remained in Italy until Fortuny’s death in 1875. Agrasot then returned to Valencia, becoming a member of the Academy of San Carlos and San Fernando Real.
