A substantial, mid-century oil abstract comprising superimposed blocked forms in pastel tints of greens and yellows, overlaid with dramatic, impasto slashes and action trails. This notable Chilean artist first studied under Gregorio de la Fuente at the Santiago School of Fine Arts and, subsequently, at the University of Chile's School of Theater, of which he was appointed professor in 1952. In 1953, he moved to Paris where he studied with Roberto Matta and was influenced by the work of Delacroix and Ingres. From 1959-1961, with a grant from the Ministry of Culture of Czechoslovakia, he studied, painted and exhibited in Prague. During the 1960s, Nuñez continued to travel widely, painting and exhibiting with success in the United States, Italy, England and Holland. In 1967, he designed and painted the sets for the award-winning international theatrical production of Pablo Neruda's "Flash and Death of Joaquin Murieta." We are pleased to offer this elegant and harmonious abstract, painted circa 1965 and dating to the artist's middle period. Displayed in the original and period, stained and painted mahogany frame.
