Galeria Marc Domènech is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Léon Tutundjian (Amasya, 1905 – Paris, 1968) with more than forty pieces between paintings, reliefs, collages, watercolors and drawings created between 1924 and 1929. This is the first individual exhibition dedicated to Tutundjian in Spain and focuses on one of the most important and fruitful periods of the artist.
Léon Tutundjian was an outstanding artistic figure of the interwar period in Paris. In fact, he was one of the most important artists in the consolidation of both organic and geometric abstract art produced during the transcendental 1920s and 30s. His work was truly admired by many of his contemporaries. Proof of this is a letter that Jean Hélion wrote to him in 1958: “I remember when we met, in about 1929, and how extraordinarily far ahead you were of others in our generation, both in your mentality and in your works. You impressed and influenced quite a few artists, some of whom are now well known, like Calder, for example, who admired you hugely (…). Van Doesburg spoke of you with the most glowing terms (…). Carlsund, and many others, as a result of your 1929 exhibition at the Galerie Bonaparte, considered you a master. Herbin liked you particularly.”
