Galeria Marc Domènech is focused on promoting and defending the art of the 20th century. Its activity is aimed at working with the most representative works of the main national and international artists of this period.
As well as focusing its efforts on this line of historical avant-garde, Galeria Marc Domènech also directs its activity to boost and promote two more lines of work that simultaneously define the profile of the gallery; one on contemporary art and the other entitled "Artists rediscovered" focused on recuperating artists from the past who have not received their deserved recognition.
From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8
Sun. 20th Sept. / 10 am - 3 pm
The exhibition "Óscar Domínguez: The 'Triple Trait'. 1948-1952" brings together for the first time the works Domínguez made using his triple trait (three-line) technique.
In the late 1940s, the artist moved away from his Surrealism of the thirties and into a more figurative world in which his paintings were dominated by geometric compositions influenced by Picasso and done in thick brushwork. In 1948, however, Domínguez embarked on a new stylistic approach termed the triple trait, characterised by his use of a thin line of India ink with a white border on either side to outline the various elements in the composition, like a kind of aura. The works he produced during this period became much purer, rigorous and more balanced, while the drawing that predominates in them is done in sharp, precise fine lines and the colours are luminous once again. This was unquestionably the most positive and optimistic body of work Domínguez ever made.
Óscar Domínguez (1906, Tenerife - 1957, Paris) was one of the most important Spanish surrealist artists.From 1948 he moved away from André Breton's movement and entered a more figurative world in which geometrical compositions become the main focus, and he started the stage called "Triple Trait".
