Joaquín Torres-García was an artist, writer and teacher from Uruguay. Born in 1874, he spent his childhood in the capital city of Montevideo before emigrating to Spain. In Catalonia, he began his studies with a local painter, and later enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona.
In his thirties, Torres-García began teaching. He worked at an experimental school, introducing a style of art that he coined ‘universal constructivism’. This reflected his personal approach to painting; geometric shapes with pictographs of what he considered ‘universal’ symbols such as the moon and sun.
Influenced by the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements, his artistic aim was to achieve order and harmony within his structured, organised compositions.
