At 14 I started working as a painter in Palafrugell and during the eleven following I learned the trade.
By the year 1965, I decided to set up the PINQUEES company BAQUE for my account and, after a short time, I take an apprentice and, at the age of two, I take another.
The company works, I have a lot of work and in the following years I got to have up to six workers.
The scope of the company is of course Palafrugell, Llafranc, Calella and Tamariu. Also Begur and its beaches, up to Platja D'Aro, S'Agaró and sporadically in Girona and Barcelona.
A really curious anecdote is that a gentleman called Escuder, a client of Calella, took us to paint a farm that has a height of 2,400 meters in the Pyrenees, touching the border between Catalonia and Andorra in the town of Prullans, in Lleida .
The company is dedicated to interior paintings (lacquers, stuccoes, wallpaper, glaze and varnish), maintenance of facades, neighborhood communities, etc ... Forty years working, until the time of retirement, but the company, continues its activity, since my son DANIEL BAQUE, is currently carrying it and is at the service of all of you as desired.
Forty years ago, he travels to meet a lot of people who have painted the house on the floor or on the business. With some of them, we have maintained a client-business relationship, but with others, a friendship relationship has been created and, I can say proud that I still have, with clients from when I founded this modest company.
Naturally, they had faithful clients for a few years, and others with a shorter duration, including some that we only served once. We lost some of them, just because they were already big and we were left.
All were welcomed, as will be those who from now on have the kindness to hire the company that currently still has the name BAQUE PAINTINGS.
