Game in the house of Troy
Technique used in this work
La Casa de la Troya was a former student residence in Santiago de Compostela, located on the La Troya rua. It is currently a museum house set in the book of the same name that Alejandro Pérez-Lugín wrote, drawing on his own experience as a student there. The scene recreates a timba, with the protagonist of the book (similar to the poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer) and his friends, in one of the rooms of the pension while another friend sleeps the monkey in the background, between the smoke of tobacco.
