Juan Carlos Castagnino (Argentine, 1908-1972) Untitled Pastel on paper 25 in x 18 in Born in the city of Mar del Plata, Argentina, Juan Carlos Castagnino was a fine artist and architect. He studied in the School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, and soon he became disciple of Lino Enea Spilmbergo and Ramón Gómez Cornet. In 1939 he goes to Paris where he attends the atelier of cubist painter André Lothe, and travels across Europe perfecting his art next to Braque, Léger and Picasso, among others. He received several awards such as the Great Prize of Honor of the Argentine National Hall (1961), the Medal of Honor of the International Fair of Brussels (1958) and the special award of drawing in the II Biennial of Mexico (1962). His illustrations to the national poem Martín Fierro of Jose Hernandez, published by EUDEBA (University of Buenos Aires press), gained wide recognition.
