Los sobrevivientes was executed at the cusp of the artist’s departure from pure abstraction and turn to the figuration characteristic of his work from the late 1960s and 1970s. Organic shapes such as the humanoid figure on the left plane of the canvas encouraged his eventual return to figuration. “From these round forms,” he stated in a 2013 interview, “began to appear heads which increasingly transformed themselves into far more realistic depictions.”
