Gender Objet D’Art
Manto Sculpture is a work of Object Art made by TANE and Teodoro González de León. Born on May 29, 1926 in Mexico City, he studied at the National School of Architecture of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. In 1947, thanks to a scholarship from the French government, he worked for 18 months in Le Corbusier's workshop in France. An internationally renowned architect, he was congruent with a broad vision of the modern movement, convinced of the esthetics of abstraction. Author of large works many of them in Mexico City, famous for the use of chiseled concrete in enormous minimalist blocks that imposed a characteristic stamp on all his works. Some authors call him a brutalist. Founder of a current of architectural thought consummated in Mexico based on the honesty of the material, the simplicity in composition and abstraction. His work makes a genuine unintentional reference to great examples of prehispanic architecture such as Teotihuacan and Monte Alban.
