Joan Sandalinas

Barcelona, 1903 – 1991
Composició figures (Composition figures)Oil on canvas 46 x 55 cm

Sandalinas did not have any solo exhibitions until past the age of eighty – only some pieces featured in official group shows were known. His work reflects, at times, a certain social realism, but the most important contributions were made in the metaphysical field, so little cultivated in Catalonia, from the point of view of Surrealism, Constructivism, Cubism and geometric abstraction, echoing scenes of daily life with families, workers, passers-by and office clerks.
