Pablo Gargallo (1881–1934) was Aragón’s contribution to the artistic avant-garde of the early 20th century. A great friend of Picasso and Juan Gris, he was born in Maella, Aragón, but spent his most productive years in Paris. He introduced Cubism’s jarring dimensional changes into sculpture by creating three-dimensional figures from flat metal plates. He was also among the first of the avant-garde to appropriate celebrities as images, creating sculptures modeled on Greta Garbo. The museum holds 100 of his works.
