Juan Soriano Sculptures

June 24 – September 4, 1994

Juan Soriano was referred to as one of Mexico’s national cultural treasures. At a very early age he showed an interest in art. During the 1930’s he taught and designed scenography and costumes for several plays in Mexico. He participated in group shows at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art followed by solo shows in major museums and galleries throughout 1940-60. It was during the late 1950’s, however, that he developed his strong interest for sculpture. Much of the work on display here reflected this change in Soriano’s medium.
