Manuel Felguerez (1928-2020) Planeta de piel y piedras, 1991 Oil on canvas 39.5 in x 47 in Born in San Agustin Valparaiso, Zacatecas, Felguerez is one of the most important exponents of abstract art in Mexico. From 1947 to 1952 he lived in Paris, studying at the Academy of the Grande Chaumiere; he also studied sculpture with Ossip Zadkine and Constantin Brancusi. Upon his return to Mexico City in 1953, he studied with Francisco Zuniga. Felguerez's work includes a number of highly abstract sculptures, stained glass, and murals that he created with found objects. Most of his geometric paintings preserve figurative elements pointing to the dualism between order and disorder that characterizes his entire oeuvre.
