Provenance: This work is a tribute plaque to Rodríguez Codolà offered by the Academy and the School of Fine Arts.
Manuel Rodríguez Codolà (1872 – 1946) was admitted to the Academy on February 16th 1902, where he was secretary from 1903 until his death in 1946. He was undoubtedly the moving spirit of the institution for many years. Earlier, in 1900, he had already been appointed assistant teacher of the Llotja School. The close relationship between Jaume Otero and Rodríguez Codolà was indeed the reason why this plaque was executed by Otero himself.|
