This publication highlights seven large bronze, steel and aluminum sculptures by Spanish artist Manolo Valdés (born 1942), displayed in the New York Botanical Garden between September 2012 and May 2013. Valdés designed the sculptures to alter as the seasons changed.
Spanish-born, New York-based painter Manolo Valdés (born 1942) makes multiple extrapolations of classic images of art history. For his Matador Artist’s Portfolio, Valdés dismantles and reconstructs Velázquez’s portrait of the Infanta Maria Theresa in six interpretations that vary in idiom from the Cubistic to the abstract. Text in Spanish only.
