    Darío de Regoyos was born in Ribadesella, Asturias, 1857. He studied at the San Fernando Royal Academy in 1878, where he was a student of Carlos de Haes and entered the École Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels the following year. Regoyos' painting style evolved from naturalism to the pre-symbolism of his 'La España negra' series. In later years his work developed impressionistic tendencies and a move towards Pointillism.
