Room 427 Figures of the Human Being

Room?s details

In the decades that elapsed in the period between the end of the Second World War and the 1970s, a series of international artists rejected the field of abstraction, instead focusing their work on new forms of figuration that explored certain aspects related to the figure and the human condition, stressing their corporealness and vulnerability. They represent continuity throughout the period of post-war existentialism and the pessimistic outlook concerning the fate of the human being that arose from this philosophical and literary movement.
