Eduardo chillida

The internationally renowned Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) is known for his distinctly abstract oeuvre, often translated into monumental sculptures but also in refined compositions on paper. His search for depth and spirituality translate into the fact that space and emptiness are basic concepts for Chillida. Chillida gained international recognition early on: in 1958 he received the Grand Prize at the Venice Biennale. His work is represented in collections of Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Kunstmuseum Basel, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, among many other museums and important private collections.
