"Joaquín Torres-García (1874-1949) is one of the most influential artists to have emerged from Latin America in the early 20th century. His unique innovations in the medium of wood--constructed three-dimensional grids and planes known as maderas--foreshadow later artistic developments in Europe and the Americas (such as the work of Louise Nevelson). Torres-García was also much celebrated for his work as a modernist painter, teacher, and author."--Amazon
