FIRST EDITION. RARE. In 1938 Torres-García finished the famous "Monumento Cósmico" in the Parque Rodó and published this title, which he originally created a manuscript illustrated by hand and which suggests that the Abstract Man is on the margins of all time and represents the universal civilizations most admired by him. The Cosmos lies in the conflict between man and the individual. "In 1938, when Torres-Garcia wrote "The Tradition of Abstract Man' he had been living in Uruguay for four years. He had returned from Europe to his native country after an absence of forty-five years. In Montevideo he soon realized that the artistic atmosphere was conservative and provincial but that young artist were eager to learn about the latest art developments in Paris. He formed AAC (Association of Constructivist Art) in 1935, and in 1944, the Taller Torres-Garcia. There, constructivist art as well as traditional methods of drawing and painting from the model were taught and studied. 'The Tradition of Abstract Man' is the result of the teaching and lecturing that Torres-Garcia did during this period. It is a condensed account of his essential ideas…Torres-Garcia's concept of Abstract Man, spiritual man, derived from Hellenism, which, for him embodied the highest human ideals in all the arts as well as philosophy…It was published in a facsimile of his own handwriting; the size of words and the use of capital letters are evidence of the importance he gave to a particular word or idea" (Ceclia Buzio de Torres; Hayward Gallery: Torres-Garcia: Grid-Pattern Sign. London, 1985. pp 103-111)
