About

Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to present Manuel Espinosa’s second exhibition in London. Espinosa (1912-2006) was one of Argentina’s most important post-war abstract painters. This is his first survey exhibition in Europe and it features paintings and works on paper dating from the 1950s to the 1980s. 

In 1943 Espinosa met Joaquín Torres-García, the founder of Constructive Universalism. This meeting had a profound effect on his approach to painting. Two years later he co-founded the ‘Asociación Arte Concreto-Invencion’ with Tomás Maldonado, Alfredo Hlito, and Raúl Lozza. Harnessing a post-war optimism, the group stopped painting from life and began painting abstract shapes and symbols.
