    Considered the first avant-garde Spanish language poet, Vicente Huidobro (Santiago de Chile, 1893 - Llolleo, Chile, 1948) was a pioneer in the use of calligrammes, a form of expression where the words come together to form complete images that widen or complete the meaning of what has been written. Triángulo armónico is his first calligramme and is published in his 1913 book, Canciones en la noche.

  • Henri Laurens. Femme à l'eventail (Woman with a Fan), 1919. Sculpture. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    12 february, 2002 - 16 april, 2002

    Between 1909 and 1918 figurative sculpture becomes a constructive syntax, which denies perspective and a unique point of view. Cubism, characterised by a deep reflection on the values of flat plane and volumes, makes the leap into three-dimensional objects. Pablo Picasso’s 1909 piece, Cabeza de mujer (Fernande) is considered the first Cubist sculpture, and introduces a new style of work that many other artists follow. Its appearance is due to the spirit of a new order, which was already present in painting. For Picasso, this sculpture is a further innovation, in addition to those from his early production. However, other artists develop their work after this piece, as did Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Alexander Archipenko, Henri Laurens, Jacques Lipchitz and Umberto Boccioni, which gives way to new sculptural forms in cubist patterns.
