Pablo Palazuelo

Pablo Palazuelo. Born in Madrid in 1915, Pablo Palazuelo was a painter, engraver and sculptor, and is one of the key figures in Spanish art in the second half of the 20th century. His training as an architect at the City of Oxford School of Arts and Crafts was cut short by the Spanish Civil War, and his artistic work shifted from the figurative to the abstract, influenced by Paul Klee and oriental mysticism.

Throughout his career, Palazuelo exhibited paintings, engravings, and sculptures in the most prestigious galleries in France, Basel, the United States, and Spain, a discipline that he began to fully develop in 1977. His work can be found in museums such as Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art, where he exhibited regularly; the Juan March Foundation; the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris; the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art of Cuenca; the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the MNCARS in Madrid, the MACBA, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York or the ICO Collections.
Pablo Palazuelo received the Gold Medal for merit in Fine Arts (1982), the National Prize for Plastic Arts ex aequo with Cristina Iglesias (1999) and the Velázquez Prize (2004). He passed away in Madrid in 2007.
