Enric Planasdurà (Barcelona, 1921-1984) formed part of several Catalan avant-garde currents during the fifties and sixties. He was a member of the Lais group, which drew up the Manifiesto Negro in 1949, as well as collaborating with Dau al Set and la Escuela de Altamira, amongst others. His painting follows in the footsteps of Le Corbusier’s geometric purism, but also incorporates the use of Surrealist symbols and monochromatic backgrounds inherited from Miró. The work of Planasdurà possesses a deep, plastic elegance in which the strength of the colour combines with a precise, forceful line, giving his works a particular sense of spatial or volumetric depth.
