Besides her literary works, the celebrated Lebanese-American poet, essayist, and scholar Etel Adnan (1925-2021) also created visual works such as films, oil paintings, and tapestries. Published in conjunction with the first exhibition in Spain to survey her career, Behind the Horizon Line presents a selection of more than 60 works since the 1960s, with a special emphasis on her output from the last two decades. All the artist's creative media - painting, drawing, leporellos, ceramics, textiles, and video - are represented. As such, the collection clearly reflects her stylistic evolution from the pure geometric abstraction of her early years to her interpretations of landscape in the 1970s.
