The work of Joaquín Torres-García opened up transformative possibilities for modernist art on both sides of the Atlantic. A Uruguyan who lived in South America, North America, and Europe, Torres-García anticipated the cultural breadth of today's art world not only in his life but in his equal concerns with the avant-garde and the primitive, the schematic and the utopian. Published alongside the first major American retrospective of Torres-García work since the 1970s, this book richly illustrates his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and manuscripts offering a full overview of his long and wide-ranging career.
