In 1934 the artist Joaquín Torres-García, recently returned from Europe to his native Uruguay, laid out his artistic vision for an “Escuela del Sur,” an art and design workshop founded on a dual model: medieval craft guilds and modern art schools such as the Bauhaus. This vision came to fruition in 1942 in the form of the Taller Torres-García; this atelier became an epicenter for a prolific group of young Uruguayan artists and designers. When Bernard Chappard, a distinguished French Venezuelan collector, discovered Torres-García and the artists of his atelier, their works became the core of his collection. Click ahead for highlights, now available online, including works by key members Gonzalo Fonseca, José Gurvich and Julio Alpuy, as well as Torres-García himself.
