This is the catalog of the exhibition featuring Manuel Martinez Hugué, better known as Manolo (1872-1945), a Catalan Spanish sculptor associated with the noucentisme movement. The exhibition took place at Galerie Louise Leiris in Paris from May 17 to June 17, 1961.
The catalog includes a preface by Victor Crestre (1903-1983), a specialist in the Surrealist movement and the author of numerous works on art and literature, as well as 105 illustrations of Manolo’s artworks and the exhibition checklist.
The book was part of the collection of Ilya Zilberstein (1905-1988), a prominent literary and art critic, public figure, and the editor of the multi-volume publication 'Literaturnye Pamiatniki' (Literary Heritage). He was one of the most significant Soviet collectors and played a pivotal role in establishing the Museum of Private Collections, a department of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. The museum's collection is based on Zilberstein's own extensive collection. He is also credited for his involvement in creating the Central State Archive of Literature and Art, and he played a crucial role in repatriating historical documents related to Russian culture from abroad and private collections to the state funds and archives of the USSR.
Zilberstein first visited Paris in 1966 during a business trip for the USSR Ministry of Culture. It is known that he received the catalogs directly from Galerie Louise Leiris.
