This title presents a lavishly illustrated overview of the works of one of Latin America's most significant and influential artists. One of the most charismatic figures of his generation, Joaquin Torres-Garcia (1874-1949) is regarded today as one of the most important and influential early twentieth century artists to have emerged from Latin America. Celebrated for his work as a modernist painter, teacher, and art theorist, Torres-Garcia is also known for breaking new ground in the realm of wooden constructions. Beginning in the late 1920s, he adapted the Neo-plasticism style of his colleagues Mondrian and Van Doesburg into a new 3-dimensional concept called 'maderas', he then further adapted this concept to create educational toys for young children. This superbly illustrated volume provides readers with an informative overview of the entire career of one of Latin America's most significant artists.
