Miguel BERROCAL | About The Artist
Miguel Ortz y Berrocal (September 28, 1933 May 31, 2006) was an artist best known for his puzzle sculptures. He was born in Villanueva de Algaidas, Mlaga, Spain, and married Maria Cristina de Bragana (the daughter of Portuguese throne pretender Maria Pia de Saxe-Coburgo e Bragana). He received formal training in mathematics, architecture, chemistry, and art. Berrocal ran a foundry in Negrar near Verona, Italy. His sculptures stress the importance of precision and detail. He approaches each sculpture as a mathematician, requiring the correct proportions. Unlike other contemporary modernist sculptures, Berrocal ignores abstract of figural elements to rather explore how interlocking shapes fit together. Berrocal is also known for his monumental sculptures which inhabit parts of Spain.
