Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Argentinian painter and draughtsman, one of South America's leading painters in the Surrealist tradition. His most characteristic works (including highly finished drawings as well as paintings) depict headless figures or mysterious towers, motifs which recall Salvador Dalí and Giorgio de Chirico. Dawn Ades comments that ‘Aizenberg's work tends to order rather than disorder, and holds a delicate balance between an almost geometrical abstraction and symbolism.’ In 1977 he moved to Paris and in 1981 to Tarquinia in Italy.
