Work of the sculptor Vicente Navarro Romero. It was installed in 1918 in the then Jardincillos de l’Audiencia (today Palau de la Generalitat) on the initiative of the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Valencia. With the construction during the Civil War of a shelter in these gardens, the sculpture suffered such deterioration that it was dismantled in 1939. It was an image of the painter sitting on a backless bench. Nothing else has been heard of this work.

In 1946 the painter’s son, Ignacio Pinazo Martínez , offered the Valencia City Council to replace the sculpture again with a model made by himself and at his expense. The site it now occupies was chosen as the site, and was placed in the gardens in 1949.

It is a seated figure of the painter (in his resting chair), made of marble of approximately two meters high. In his hands he holds a Valencian farmer’s blanket, a handkerchief knotted around his neck, and the paint tools. His face is a faithful reflection of the image of the painter.
