We’re thrilled to offer several works by Ricardo Nowinski (1962- ), a highly regarded sculptor and ceramicist from Uruguay. Nowinski has exhibited throughout Uruguay. These pieces are early works (1980s-1990s). He currently does monumental abstract sculptures featuring figures and abstracted architectural forms. 

Ricardo trained under his father Jaime Nowinski (1934- ) who was part of the Uruguayan post-war modernist movement spearheaded by Joaquín Torres García and Miguel Ángel Pareja. Our gallery has sold other works from Uruguay including a rare vase by López Lomba and an abstract painting by Nelson Ramos. Garcia was influenced by Picasso — these artists traveled frequently to Europe during the 1950s. Ricardo is represented by Juan Palleiro Art Gallery in Uruguay. I’ve seen other Nowinski sculptures at a Mid-Century gallery in Jose Ignacio.
