“Boundaries are the true protagonists of space, just like the present, another boundary, is the true protagonist of time.”
Eduardo Chillida's work was known internationally early on in his career. Ever since he worked in Paris with French gallery owner Aimé Maeght, the artist began to receive awards and requests for his work from some of the world's most prominent museums. His sculptures, drawings and "gravitations" have been commissioned around the globe and can now be contemplated in galleries and museums in several different countries. A large part of Chillida's work has been acquired by German museums. The artist himself said that his work spoke German because that is where it was understood and specially admired. Museums in Cologne, Hannover and Berlin feature his sculptures in their collections.
Highlighted among Chillida's work are his first Peine del Viento (Wind Comb), from the permanent collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and his wooden sculptures from the Abesti Gogora series, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
