Chillida and Oteiza, two of the biggest names in spanish art

Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002, San Sebastián) is perhaps the leading interpreter of the city and the most internationally renowned Basque artist. The Comb of the Wind, synonym and symbol of San Sebastián, is the most famous manifestation of his sensitivity and his love for his city. Many more of his works are scattered throughout San Sebastián: the Homage to Rafael Balerdi on the Pico del Loro, Homage to Victor Fleming on Paseo de La Concha, and Homage to Pedro Arana on Monte Urgull. Some of his crosses are on display at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and the Basilica of Saint Mary. The Chillida-Leku Museum, currently closed, is the last work Eduardo created before his death: a green space inhabited by his works where visitors can wander.

Jorge Oteiza (Orio, 1908 - San Sebastián, 2003), together with Chillida, one of the greatest examples of the Basque School of Sculpture, is also exhibited here. On Paseo Nuevo, in defiance of the sea, is his Empty Construction, and the exterior facade of the Church of San Vicente in the Old Town features his Piety sculpture.
