Synopsis

Rubén Santantonín is selected for the Premio de Honor [Prize of Honor] at Ver y Estimar 1962 (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires).

Annotations

Rubén Santantonín (1919-1969) coined the term “cosas” [“things”] for his artistic production. He used the term to refer to cardboard reliefs, which were meant to be exhibited on supporting walls, as well as to hanging objects, created with rudimentary materials such as plaster, cloth, cardboard and wire.
In 1965 Rubén Santantonín burned all his works—there remain a few reproductions—and, as such, the photographic records within catalogs and brochures acquired special significance. 
Ver y estimar [See and Consider magazine] (1948 – 1955) was created by Jorge Romero Brest in collaboration with his students. The Asociación Ver y Estimar was founded in 1954; a few years later it gave rise to the Premio [Prize] Ver y Estimar (Buenos Aires, 1960-1968).
