Joaquin Torres Garcia

Which cold-hearted philistine amongst you, I beg, cannot find a smile in front of these small pieces made by Joaquin Torres Garcia? Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1874, he lived much of his adult life in Barcelona, Madrid and Paris before returning home to spend his last years living a prolific life as both a painter and sculptor. He died in 1949.
