Francesc (Francisco) Pausas Coll, Barcelona 1877 – 1944, was the brother of my great grandfather. He was a painter, specialized in portraits, that lived and worked in Barcelona, Paris, New York and La Habana. Most of his paintings are spread in many private collections; the only ones that I know they are in public exhibition are:

Perhaps there are some more is Cuban museums (?). Below are the 4 paintings from him that I have at home (click on the image to enlarge it).

If you know of any other work by him, please let me know.
