Chillida and Maeght

In his property, dominating the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, my grandfather, Aimé Maeght, had not only created a heavenly garden where children and adults could dream, but he had installed workshops for ceramics and engraving.
The artists came to spend several months working with the best technicians and live as close as possible to Aimé, the Maeght Foundation and its international influence.
In these workshops, Miró made his greatest etchings, Tàpies developed printing techniques, Riopelle explored engraving and ceramics...

Their works were later exhibited at the Maeght Gallery.

Here, in 1973, Eduardo Chillida with a sculpture called "grog clay", photographed by the talented and kind Ernst Scheidegger.
Grog is a fine-structured clay with thicker elements (grog) visible to the naked eye. The grog itself is usually a fired clay that has been ground into grains of various sizes.

"The Comb of the Wind", completed in 1977 in San Sebastián, is one of the most famous works of Eduardo Chillida. Clinging to the rocks overlooking the sea, its color changes with the waves, the light, the seasons, a must see!
He was exhibited in 1956 at the Maeght Gallery, and is one of the artists who has had the greatest number of exhibitions organized by the Maeght Gallery, whether in Paris, Barcelona or Zurich.
In 1958, at the age of 34, Chillida represented Spain at the Venice Biennale. In 1962 he had a solo exhibition at the Kunsthalle in Basel, then participated in the exhibition "Three Spaniards: Picasso, Miró, Chillida" at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. His works are still exhibited at the Maeght Foundation.
Chillida, a great sculptor but also creator of an exceptional graphic work.
