Summary
The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros is the foremost collection of geometric abstract art from Latin America. From the 1930s through the 1970s distinct artistic movements emerged in the cities of Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Caracas that explored innovative forms of expression reflecting the new optimism sweeping the continent. This volume explores the ways in which the artists of these cities heralded the promise of a bright, modern future by creating a commensurate visual language to capture this positive spirit
