(Ibiza, 1916 – Barcelona, 1983)
The son of Narcís Puget Viñas, Narcís Puget Riquer was born in Ibiza in 1916. While at secondary school he attended his father`s academy of drawing and painting. His early works show his father`s influence not only in subject matter, but also in technique, particulary in his use of oils. In 1933, encouraged by a group of teachers and students on a visit to Ibiza and with whom he became very friendly, he enrolled at the Madrid School of Ceramics, where he learned to paint in watercolours, the tecnique for which he would eventually become best known.
The Civil War delayed his return to Ibiza, but once here he gave himself over full time to his painting and to exibitions, particularly from the 1940s onwards. In the 1950 problems with his eyesight forced him to give up painting. He married in Barcelona 1959, later moving to Santa Eulària. After 12 years there he took up residence at the family home in Vara de Rey. He died suddenly in Barcelona in 1983.
