Shellfish Gatherers

Las mariscadoras. Luis Seoane. 1969. Oil on canvas.

Outdoor scene, featuring four figures gathering shellfish, two of them in the foreground and the other two in the background. They are bent over and each pair faces each other. The color is commanding (white, red, black, yellow and purple), to which lines and simple geometric shapes are added that complement the chromatic scene, but without confining them. The work was given to the exhibition “HUNDRED PERCENT SEOANE. 100 years, 100 places ” that was celebrated in the Caixa Galicia Foundation of A Coruña from 13 October 2010 to 28 February 2011.
