about Juan Genovés
Juan Genovés has always had a great concern to renew the Spanish art and give recognition to the artist he deserves. The Seven (1949), Parpallós (1956) and Hondo (1960). In this last group, which involved new figurative approaches to Informalism, Genovés developed a painting of expressionist and provocative nature. In recent years his work has taken a turn towards the investigation of the static movement in painting, the crowd has become the reference to talk about the problem of painting and visual rhythm.
