"Both objects that share this Ramon Casas nude, a picture frame and a guitar, leaned on the wall at the back, make us think that “Nude and guitar” possibly was painted in the painter’s studio, placed in the number 94 of the Gràcia Promenade in Barcelona, where his family settled on the year 1894 and where he had a wide and bright space, designed specifically as a studio, that became at the same time a meeting place and a headquarters of several initiatives and cultural activities as the magazine Pel&Ploma.

We explain the presence of the guitar because Casas was a skilled performer of this instrument, since he learned to play it during his stays in Granada."
