eduardo chillida
* 1924 und † 2002 in San Sebastián
Chillida had his first exhibition in Paris in 1950, the same year he married Pilar Belzunce. Throughout his life he received almost all existing awards: from the Venice Biennale to the Kandinsky Prize, from the Wilhelm Lehmbruck to the Prince of Asturias’ Prize, from the German Kaiserring to the Imperial Prize in Japan. His work is included in more than twenty museums around the world, and retrospective exhibitions have been held in Houston, Berlin, Madrid, Caracas, London and Palermo. His sculptures are in front of the sea like in San Sebastian, or in the mountains like in Japan, and in cities like Washington, Paris, Lund, Munster, Madrid, Palma de Mallorca, Guernica or Berlin. Many architects, mathematicians or philosophers like Martin Heidegger and Emile Cioran, and poets such as Octavio Paz have written about his work.
