"Kultur – 1962" from 1962, is the first approach to what would be the most extensive and perhaps characteristic production of Joaquim Rodrigo.
Rodrigo mixed the four major colours of his already defined theory (red, yellow, white and black) on an ochre background, inscribing some signs with the same colours, filling in areas or designing their outlines. This work alludes to the academic crisis lived during 1962 that culminated in an invasion of the university campus by police and the principal's subsequent resignation. Once again, an episode taken from national political life, that has only been recognised now, was registered by a painting that hereby enlarged its domain of the world and the natural diversity of events that composes a time.
