Provides a pioneering study of the innovative workshop founded in Montevideo by renowned Uruguayan artist Joaquin Torres-Garcia (1874-1949), who encouraged in his teaching and writings the development of a Modernist idiom based on European Constructivism but incorporating Pre-Columbian and other Latin American motifs. Featuring reproductions of more than 100 paintings, sculptures, reliefs, ceramic objects and decorative pieces produced by Julio Alpuy, Gonzalo Fonseca, Horacio Torres and other figures associated with the workshop (1943-1962) or with its precursor, the Asociacion de Arte Constructivo (1934-1942), the catalogue also presents a selection of some 50 works by contemporary artists reflecting the traditions established by the school. Previously unpublished theoretical texts by Torres-Garcia augment five detailed essays tracing the history of the workshops and discussing the painter's continuing influence on art throughout Latin America.
