Manuel Martinez Hugué, more widely known as 'Manolo', was a highly celebrated Catalan sculptor. A close friend of Pablo Picasso, the artist was born in Barcelona in 1872 and spent some time living in Paris, where he developed his outstanding style which has echoes of the French master Aristide Maillol (1861-1944). Manolo is widely known for his magnificent sculptures, but this skilled artist also created a wonderful collection of paintings, drawings and prints. All of these works have proven highly sought-after internationally at auction, with sales figures reaching close to £14,000.
