An exhibition of the work of two pioneering artists joined together in the exhibition on the basis of their work in the non-figurative movents that took place in Argentina in the mid-20th century. Yente (Eugenia Crenovich, 1905-2005) and Prati (Lidy Prati, 1921-2008) and have been for over sixty years "secret" artists, Queens of the mystery, who were married to major figures in the art world and were relegated to secondary roles. But time has shown, due to the growth of recognition over time that Latin American abstraction has gained in museums around the world, and in the market, their status as pioneers of abstraction has been recognized in the world of the initiated, but his artistic legacy was unknown, until this exhibition, by the general public.
