"Josep Reynés, who probably is the author of this decorative sculpture, was educated in the Noble Art School of Barcelona, popularly known as “LLotja”. He was an trainee in the Rossend Ribas studio, where happened to meet the sculptor Manel Fuxà and in the year 1873 he went to Paris to work in the studio of Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, there he achieved a certain tendency to ornamentation.

Reynés relation with Sitges is clear in the monumental sculptures devoted to El Greco (1898) and to Bartomeu Robert, M.D. (1906) and in the allegorical statues that decorate the pantheons of Antoni Serra Ferrer (1906) and Manuel Robert Aldofeu (1902) families in the village cemetery, all of them done by the sculptor."
