(*) Eduardo Chillida was born in San Sebastián (Guipúzcoa), in 1924. In 1947 he made his first pieces. For two years (1948-1950) he resided in France where he held his first exhibition. On his return to the Basque Country, he settled in Hernani where he made his first work made of iron, "Ilarik" (1951), material with which he would work for ten years. Around 1960 he returned to the great granite sculptures. His first exhibition was presented in Madrid, in 1954; jobs and successes quickly followed. He was one of the 30 creators who used fragments of the Berlin wall as canvas. Since 1996 he has been an advisory artistic commissioner for the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum. One of the highest representatives of the contemporary Spanish scene with Tàpies, Miró, Oteiza, Saura, Palazuelo, Millares among others. The dream of having an open-air museum was fulfilled. He died in his hometown in 2002.
