Born in Valencia in 1930, Genovés is considered to be one of Spain's best known contemporary artists. "Recognized for his aesthetic style rooted in social realism and political art, Genovés has a distinctly critical voice that became a force for political change during the Francisco Franco regime in Spain," said Tara K. Reddi, vice president of Marlborough Gallery, which represents the artist.
Genovés' body of work is devoted to the subject of political engagement. His artistic development occurred in the isolated world of Franco's Spain, where he was influenced by modern photography and cinema, especially the work of Sergei Eisenstein.
Genovés' work is found in many of the most important public collections in the U. S. and Europe, including: The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, USA; Centre National d'Art Contemporain, Paris, France; Galeria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome, Italy; The Museum of Modern Art and The Guggenheim Museum, both in New York, USA; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain; Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel; Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno, Valencia, Spain; and Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels, Belgium.
