Joaquín Torres-García is recognized as one of the founders of the constructivist movement in both Europe and South America. This rare early wooden construction, Mantlepiece with Figure from 1928, demonstrates Torres' complex exploration of abstract forms and his experimentation with found materials both in his paintings and sculpture. A year after creating Mantlepiece, Torres became a founding member of the Parisian constructivist group Cercle et Carré in 1929, together with other members including Mondrian, Vantongerloo, Russolo and Seuphor.
