The years of search, (1950s) encompass a very difficult time in the artist's life, during which he suffered great financial difficulties, as well as doubts about his work. These were years of despair and years of experimentation in different artistic media. We will show many previously unseen experimental watercolors and drawings that were created during this difficult decade as well as some of the completed works that allowed the artist to finally find his way out of a crisis that lasted for more than a decade.
