Painter Hlito (b. Argentina 1923-1993), one of the main figures of the geometric, nonrepresentational art movement called Arte Concreto-Invención (in Argentina during the 1940's), was also an inquisitive and lucid author. The present edition presents a careful and chronologically organized selection done by poet Alonso of Hlito's never before published texts along sections of his secret diaries full of reflections and intimate revelations of his intellectual and aesthetic thoughts. A fundamental work on art in Argentina.
