Rafael Senet Pérez

Spanish (1856 - 1926)

Rafael Senet Pérez was a Spanish painter and watercolourist, known for his costumbrista and Orientalist scenes. He also created numerous vedute of Venice.

Rafael Senet Perez studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de Santa Isabel de Hungría, under the tutelage of esteemed artists Joaquín Domínguez Bécquer and Eduardo Cano [es].

In 1880, after a brief period in Madrid, Perez ventured to Rome with the support of local banker Ramón de Ibarra. It was in Rome that he became influenced by the work of José Villegas Cordero. Subsequently, he travelled Italy, dedicating an extended period to capturing the essence of Venice in his art.

Perez's painting, "El regreso de la pesca en Nápoles" (The Return of the Fishing (fishermen) in Naples), earned him a second-place medal at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in 1884. That same year, he clinched second prize at an exposition in Munich. His works also graced exhibitions such as the "Exposición del Centro de Acuarelistas" (Watercolorists Exhibition) in Barcelona and the fifth "Muestra Internacional de Bellas Artes" in 1907.

Rafael Senet Pérez was closely affiliated with the landscape painting group known as the Alcalá de Guadaira school.
