"Enric Clarasó i Daudí (Sant Feliu del Racó, 1857 - Barcelona, 1941) was a Catalan Moderniste sculptor with a style that moves between Costumisme (pictorial interpretation mannerisms, and customs) and Symbolism. He used to join the circles of Rusiñol and Casas. His style has been related to the sculptor, Josep Llimona.
He studied under the sculptor Joan Roig i Solé, in the Barcelona School of Fine Arts. He first shared a studio with the artist Carbonell Selva and later with Santiago Rusiñol, with whom he was great friends. Together with Ramon Casas, they formed a trio that was very well-known among the bohemians in Barcelona at the beginning of the 20th century. His first works display a character of anecdotal realism, but after spending some time in Paris his sculptures became more sensitive, thus qualifying as a Moderniste artist.
He produced many funerary sculptures, including burial chambers for the cemeteries in Barcelona and Zaragoza. In 1931 he published his autobiography called Notes Viscudes (Lived Notes)."
