Further information on this artwork

Der Künstler studierte in Chile Architektur und ging ab 1933 nach Paris, wo er im Atelier von Le Corbusier arbeitete. Ab 1938 wandte er sich der Malerei zu. Er reiste viel durch Europa und wurde mit zahlreichen Künstlern, darunter Salvador Dalí (1904 - 1989), Henry Moore (1898 - 1986) oder Alvar Aalto (1898 - 1976) bekannt. Ausschlaggebend für seine künstlerische Entwicklung war jedoch die Begegnung und Freundschaft mit André Breton (1896 - 1966). Die Kriegsjahre verbrachte er ab Herbst 1938 in New York, kehrte aber 1948 nach Europa zurück und ließ sich 1958 in Rom nieder. Seine Arbeiten werden dem Surrealismus zugerechnet.

Der Künstler bekannt durch zahlreiche internationale Ausstellungen seit 1938 bis zuletzt 2012/13 im Bucerius Kunstforum, Hamburg, sowie im Museum Baden-Baden. Vorliegendes Werk eine abstrakte Komposition mit darin linear erkennbaren menschlichen Figuren, auf überwiegend hellbraunem Grund. (1030753)

The artist studied architecture in Chile and went to Paris in 1933, where he worked at the workshop of Le Corbusier. In 1938 he devoted himself to painting. He travelled through Europe and made the acquaintance of many artists including Salvador Dalí, Henry Moore and Alvar Aalto. Crucial for his artistic development, however, was his encounter and friendship with André Breton. From 1938 onwards and during the war he stayed in New York but returned to Europe in 1948 and settled in Rome in 1958. His works are ascribed to Surrealism. The artist’s fame has grown thanks to numerous international exhibitions of his work beginning in 1938 and most recently from 2012 - 2013 at Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg and the Baden-Baden Museum. The painting offered for sale here is an abstract composition with discernible linear human figures on a predominantly light brown background.
