Object Description: Composed of flat, geometric planes of color that overlap and intersect, this painting by Juan Del Prete predicts the hard-edge brand of geometric abstraction that would come to dominate Argentine art in the 1940s. Though Del Prete was a pioneer of geometric abstraction in Latin America, his brushwork often betrayed a more expressive sensibility. The painterly texture of "Composición," with its uneven line, warm palette, and gentle gradations in tone, lends the composition an unusual intimacy.
