In his triptych Atelier (Studio), Toranzos pays tribute to Juan Anselmo Samudio, a major figure in Paraguayan painting from the first half of the twentieth century.
In this work, the artists reflects on the image and painting.
He worked on the basis of original photographs of Samudio's studio taken in 1905, which he rendered on canvas after intervening on them digitally; finally, he placed the canvases on small stretchers inside crates.
Though there is no perspective and it is as if the characters were floating, the atmosphere is one of playfulness and alliance.
