Foreword by Anthony Blunt. Introductory text by Raymond Cogniat. Cover title: Figari. Includes a biographical note. Pedro Figari (b. 29 June 1861; d. 24 July 1938), Uruguayan painter. Born in Montevideo, Figari had no formal art training in his youth but later studied drawing and painting with Godofredo Sommavilla in Montevideo and with Virgilio Ripari in Venice (1886). His astonishing artistic career did not begin until 1921, at age sixty, when he had his first exhibition in Buenos Aires at the Galería Müller. He was one of the founders of Uruguay's school of arts (1898), as well as a founding member of the Sociedad Amigos del Arte in Buenos Aires (1924). Figari was the author of several books, including Art, Aesthetics and the Ideal (1912), in which he developed ideas taken from Herbert Spenser, and La historia Kiria (1930), the description of a Uruguayan utopia.
