The Legacy of Julio González
by Thalia Vrachopoulos

“The work of González is one of the most solid and most beautiful elements in the future edifice the younger generation is building, though generally unrecognized in Spain, where only his imitators are known.”1 This observation about Julio González’s lack of recognition in Spain could until very recently have applied to most countries. Given González’s accomplishments and his general recognition between the wars, his declining reputation in the years after his death in 1942 is puzzling.
