Pablo Palazuelo was a Spanish artist, best known for his large-scale geometric abstract paintings and melted bronze sculptures. Influenced by the work of Paul Klee, Juan Gris, and Pablo Picasso, Palazuelo’s paintings are often composed of two-tones, depicting the phenomenal conflict between flat planes of color and line. Born on October 8, 1916 in Madrid, Spain, he studied architecture in Madrid and later at the School of Arts and Crafts. After receiving the Kandinsky Prize in 1952, Palazuelo delved into his self-titled movement “Trans-geometría,” or how to translate nature's organic rhythm into plastic art. He was included in the “Younger European Painters: A Selection” at the Guggenheim Museum in 1953. Palazuelo enjoyed considerable acclaim for his work, including winning the Carnegie Prize in 1958 for his piece Mandala shown at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. His works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Guggenheim Bilbao, and the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. The artist died on October 3, 2007 in Madrid, Spain.
