WORKS ON PAPER BY CARLOS HERMOSILLA ALVAREZ

firstsite@the minories, Colchester

30 May 2001 - 30 June 2001

The exhibition pays homage to one of Chile's most interesting visual artists of the twentieth century, Carlos Hermosilla Alvarez.

The new exhibition, displayed in the Collections Room is entitled Works on Paper by Carlos Hermosilla Alvarez. Alvarez (1905-1991), a Chilean-born artist, was an excellent exponent of printmaking, a highly developed medium in Latin America. He was self-taught, and his talent spread across different media during a long carrier developed in his native Chile.
The works by Alvarez which make up the exhibition belong to a local art collector, Mrs Ruby Reid Thompson, who was a friend to the artist during his lifetime.
