Presentation abstract

Contemporary sculpture is one the great forgotten areas within the field of Fine Arts of the past XXth century. The radical changes in painting and the revolution in construction also occurred in the world of sculpture. However, a quiet reflection on contemporary abstract sculpture from a current point of view is lacking. This work revisits the 17 sculptures of the Public Sculpture Museum of Madrid, located on the Paseo de la Castellana. The approach takes places from a historial and analytical point of view, setting the angle in the message hidden in every single sculpture, accoding with the artist's intentions and the original idea of the open museum, created more than 40 years ago. This research reviews as well the history of this collection and its evolution during the last decades.
