The exhibition, with a selection of more than 50 drawings, offers a complete picture of Joaquín Torres-García's artistic universe. The variety of drawings on show illustrate clearly the artist's different styles he used and the stages he went through. There are works from his catalan period and also from his stays in New York, Paris and also Montevideo. Thanks to this selection one can appreciate his contribution to catalan Noucentisme, his devotion for Constructivism and also his interest in Primitivism which is unambiguously used during his years in both Paris and Montevideo. All the drawings come from the collection of the artists' widow, Manolita Piña, and are now seen in public for the first time.
