The Basque artist Eduardo Chillida (1924 -2002) is considered to be one of the most important sculptors of his generation. His abstract sculptures adorn public places and buildings worldwide.
This opulently illustrated book highlights the diversity of Chillidas world of shapes, and documents his work from his beginnings in the 1940s to the late 1990s. It traces Chillidas path from his artistic debut in Paris to his time in the Basque Country, his birthplace, where he initially turned to metal sculpture in order to 'steel' his ideas on space, before working with new materials such as wood and alabaster. A creative dialogue with the philosopher Martin Heidegger pays tribute to his book illustrations. Wind Combs, a powerful metal sculpture erected over the bay of San Sebastián, is one of Chillidas key works. The photographs in this book document the long process of development which went into the realization this group of sculptures.
As an in-depth connoisseur of his fathers lifework, Ignacio Chillida has selected the works presented in this publication. The result is an unusually rich and abundantly illustrated book which shows the entire scope of Chillidas visual world
