Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A modernist sculptor and drawing master from the Basque section of Spain that includes his birthplace, San Sebastian, Eduardo Chillida did early work that focused on the human figure, especially torsos and busts, but later did massive abstract pieces from concrete, cast iron and steel.  One of his very largest sculptures, De Musica, weighs 81 tons and has arm-like pillars that reach towards each other but do not touch.  It was exhibited in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in W (showing 500 of 3417 characters).
