Recognized as one of the first abstract artists of the continent, his figurative work displays an unmistakable fondness for the pre-Colombian traditions of his native Peru, but his breadth of artistic mediums impedes defining him by a single form of expression, technique, or theme. Additionally, critiques from his different artistic periods are included.Exhaustivo y copiosamente ilustrado, este relato fundamental de las obras de Armando Villegas—desde los dibujos y los óleos a las esculturas, los murales, y los collages—es la compilacion mas completa de su arte. Reconocido como uno de los primeros artistas abstractos del continente, su obra figurativa muestra un apego a las tradiciones precolombinas de su nativo Perú, pero su amplitud de medios artisticos impide circunscribirse a una sola forma de expresión, a una sola técnica, a una sola temática. Adicionalmente, se incluyen críticas de sus diferentes periodos artísticos.
