Biography   Gonzalo Fonseca


"Gonzalo Fonseca, 74, Carved Enigmas in Stone," By Holland Cotter, Obituary, The New York Times, June 18, 1997

Gonzalo Fonseca, a Uruguayan-born artist best known for his stone carvings of enigmatic architectural forms, died on June 11 at his studio in Seravezza, Italy, near the city of Lucca. He was 74.

The cause was a stroke, said his son, Caio, a painter.

Mr. Fonseca, who represented his native Uruguay in the 1990 Venice Biennale and created a 40-foot cast-concrete tower for the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, began his career at a dynamic moment in Latin American art, studying painting in the workshop of the the renowned modernist Joaquin Torres-Garcia in Montevideo between 1942 and 1949.
