Rafael F. Squirru (Buenos Aires, 1925), Argentinean poet and critic, studied law at the University of Buenos Aires, graduating later on in Edinburgh. He was the founding father and first director of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires. In 1957, he also founded the publishing house Ediciones del Hombre Nuevo [Editions of the New Man].
Ignacio Pirovano was a lawyer, painter, and art collector. Between 1937 and 1955, he directed the Museo de Arte Decorativo, in addition to head as president over the Comisión Nacional de Cultura between 1952 and 1953. During his tenure, he promoted Concrete art and design.
Eduardo Mac Entyre (1929) and Miguel Angel Vidal (1928) are Argentinean artists born in Buenos Aires. Both of their works are characterized on the basis of a linear geometry, which displays rhythms as it is being generated. This exhibition was presented at Galería Peuser—which, since the mid-1940s, presented outstanding exhibitions—under the sponsorship of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires. At that time, the latter still did not have the facilities that would allow to held exhibitions, thus MAM chose different galleries in Buenos Aires to do so.
Please note that Rafael Squirru signs the prologue as director of the museum.
