CATALOGUE NOTE

After spending a number of years in South America researching and teaching art, Jorge Oteiza returned to Spain in 1948 to begin to put his ideas into practice. This would become his most important period of creativity, which he called his
Propósito experimental
(An Experimental Proposition). It was not until the early 1950?s that Oteiza actually started to materialise this thought process of the importance of empty space in a body of sculpture dedicated to the emptiness of the cube. The present work
Cajas Vacías
, is perhaps his most faithful representation and conclusion of his spatial experiment. Oteiza would use the success of
Cajas Vacias
as a template from which to create other works of the same title varying in size, width and material.

Similar sculptures are housed in the permanent collections of major Spanish Institutions such as Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, Macba Collection in Barcelona and the Jorge Oteiza Fundacio in Alzuza.

Lot Notes
This work is accompanied by a photo-certificate from the artist. Jorge Oteitza is considered, along with Eduardo Chillida, one of the most influential figures in Spanish Post-War sculpture. In 1957, after being awarded the Gran Premio International at the São Paulo Bienal, he abandoned figuration and expressionism to embark instead on an epic exploration of abstraction. Looking at Mondrian and Malevich, taking his inspiration, at least in the beginning, from both artists and their geometric idioms, he chose the cube, a perfect and pure shape, as the basic abstract element for his sculptural experimentation. In Homenage a Mallarmé, Oteitza combines the evocation of his hallmark spatial concerns with an intense and personal homage to Stéphane Mallarmé, the French poet and leader of the Symbolist movement.
