Ciutadella Park: Water-Jug With Children by Josep Reynes

Water-Jug With Children by Josep Reynes, Ciutadella Park[enlarge]

Ciutadella Park, a part of the city I had not covered much in my blog in the past, is a vast green area, a sort of Central Park that holds some museums and the zoo and is sprinkled with numerous sculptures. This fountain designed by Josep Reynés dates back to 1882. The Font Gerro amb Nens (water-jug with children fountain) is one of the finest in the park.

Josep Reynés (1850-1926) was a Catalan sculptor that was trained in Barcelona and at Carpeaux’s studio in Paris. He was greatly influenced by the French school. We saw one of his works when we featured the reliefs at Arc de Triomf.

A wonderful and very playful sculpture-fountain! I'm just worried about the up-ended child when the water's on…
