Notes: Baltasar Lobo''s greatest legacy to modern sculpture is his lifelong dedication to and re-interpretation of a classic art-historical theme: the female form. Throughout his career, Lobo focused almost exclusively on the single figure of a woman as his subject, all the while exploring the varied nature of womanhood by experimenting with a range of gestures and poses. He sought to depict feminine sensuality through simplicity of form, eschewing a naturalistic imitation of the female figure in favor of an increasingly stylized yet dynamic treatment. Lobo continually experimented with this relationship between figuration and abstraction, for he believed that the true essence of femininity was achieved by a perfect balance between the two. In Lobo''s own words,''my present work is, as always, figurative; that is to say, abstract. Obligatorily it begins with figuration and becomes an abstraction which is simplified, synthesized''. Baltasar Lobo, as quoted in María Bolaños, Baltasar Lobo. 1910/1993. El silencio delescultor, (Leon: Junta de Castilla y Leon, 2000, p.151).
