The Spanish painter and sculptor, Óscar Domínguez produced most of his work in France. On moving to Paris in 1927, he made contact with the vanguard groups of the time and, in 1929, he was already under the influence of Surrealist ideas. His first one-man show took place at the Tenerife Círculo de Bellas Artes in 1933 and, in 1935, he became a member of the official Surrealist group and attempted to make their work more widely known in the Spanish artistic world. In 1934, he returned to Paris and invented the "decalcomania" technique. This was a Surrealist screen printing technique later adopted by Max Ernst. In 1940, he moved to Marseilles, continuing to exhibit internationally up until his suicide in 1957. All his work shows his concern with the subconscious, which made this artist one of the most faithful followers of the Surrealist movement.
