Description
The collection comprises 354 letters from 116 correspondents sent to the Argentine art critic Julio Payró between 1937 and 1971.
Background
Julio Payró began his career as a painter, studying with the Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres-García in Paris and Barcelona (1907), then with William de Gouve in Brussels from 1912 to 1918, after which he returned to Buenos Aires. In 1928 he decided to work solely as an art critic, building a reputation as a major analyst of 20th century art movements in Argentina and Latin America.
