Jose Dans (1805-1870) showed his advancement as a realistic painter in his work, Cristobal. This work was painted on 12 planks of wood joined together. In this painting, his human figures are effectively modelled, their limbs well drafted, and the wide lake is evoked by his accurate linear perspective.
