EDUARDO CHILLIDA

(1924 San Sebastián 2002)
Aurera VII. 1969.
Collage and litho colour on Japan paper.
Signed and with the artist's signet in pencil lower right: Chillida. Lower left titled: AURERA.
21.5 × 30 cm.

With the confirmation and explanations by the Sucesión Chillida, 5 November 2021.

Provenance:
- Erker Galerie, St. Gallen (verso with the label).
- Purchased from the above by the present owner, since then private collection Switzerland.

"Aurera", the title of the present work by Eduardo Chillida, means something like " forwards" in Basque and is thus a synonym for "bon à tirer".

The present collage is therefore the artist's model for the central, and at the same time the largest sheet of the later 8-part series for the book "Martin Heidegger: Art and Space", published in 1969.
