Julio González Retrospective
Master of Iron Sculpture

Overview

Julio González (1876-1942) is often remembered as the man who taught Picasso how to make iron sculpture. Born in Barcelona, González moved to Paris in 1900 to explore painting and crafts, and in the late 1920s, as he was beyond 50, he developed a unique form of iron sculpture using welding. The allure of his work lies in the unconstrained air of his abstract forms and its subtle humor. This exhibition, featuring a careful selection of approximately 94 works from throughout González’s career, including sculptures, drawings, and metalwork, marks the artist’s first full-fledged retrospective in Japan.
