The Centre Pompidou Málaga is exhibiting works by the Catalan sculptor from the Musée National d'Art Moderne in París and the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM).
The exhibition explores the creative stages in the career of González, who is considered the father of 20th-century iron sculpture. It begins with his Classicist nudes and figurative portraits of the 1910s and 1920s, and the cutout reliefs of his first wrought iron sculptures, which would pave the way for his great schematic sculptures of the 1930s. His last self-portraits and the subject of dance, ever-present in his work, also have their space in the exhibition. Also being shown are some of the preparatory sketches for the sculptures, which reveal his technical process and the formal variety of his creations.
