'Signes i Verts'

Joeep Grau-Garriga

Spain b. 1929

  Watercolor & collage

1970

19.5" x 27"

 

   This work was included in the artist's 1971 solo exhibit at the Arras gallery in New York.

    This painter and maker of unique tapestry art, was born in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Spain. He studied at the Escola de Belles Arts in Barcelona, earning a prize for etching.
 
  He held his first exhibition of etchings in 1953 and followed this with an exhibition of murals in 1954. He was appointed director of the Escola Catalana de Tapís in 1959. His exhibition of tapestries in Barcelona (1961) was so well received that during the next year he exhibited many times in several cities. He painted  the glass windows for the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Rome in 1966. By the late 1960s he had solo exhibitions internationally, including consecutive years in New York City. This painting is from that significant period in a continuing career.

 

  His work from that decade was the subject of a major retrospective in 1971 at the Museum of Houston. His work can be seen in the contemporary section in the Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona.

 

  We will be posting a more complete biography in the near future. Also check graphics and sculpture for more of his work.
