Cecilia de Torres, Ltd.
Cecilia de Torres, Ltd. is a gallery specializing in South American Constructivism and Geometric Abstraction. It was founded twenty-five years ago, in 1993, to promote the work of the artists of the “Taller Torres-García” (TTG), the workshop Joaquín Torres-García founded in Montevideo in 1943.
Since then, the gallery has featured over fifty exhibitions of modern and contemporary artists, including curated thematic shows such as: “65 Years of Constructivist Wood: 1930-1995” (1995), “North and South Connected: Abstraction of the Americas” (1998), “Eduardo Costa – Volumetric Paintings” (2001), “César Paternosto – Painting as Object: The Lateral Expansion, New Works” (2012), and “Expanding the Line: Drawing, Video, and Sculpture” (2017-2018). The gallery has also hosted the first New York solo exhibitions of artists León Ferrari, Gerd Leufert, and Elias Crespin.
In addition to her work at the gallery, Cecilia de Torres is internationally recognized as the leading authority on Joaquín Torres-García and the artists associated with his workshop. Ms. de Torres has curated and contributed to numerous museum exhibitions and writes extensively on Torres-García and the artists of the TTG. She is also regularly consulted by museums, Christie's, Sotheby's, and major European and South American auction houses regarding this work.
In May 2015, following forty years of research, Cecilia de Torres published the online catalogue raisonné of Joaquín Torres-García, available to the public at the website www.torresgarcia.com.
