This review of the exhibition of works by the Venezuelan painter Héctor Poleo (1918–89) at the Galerie Drouant, Paris in 1966, written by the art critic Alberto Junyent (1903–76), is one of the few documents (written in Spanish) that acknowledge the important works produced by this artist for the Parisian gallery. This was Poleo’s second exhibition at the Galerie Drouant; his first, in 1964, which included his most recent work at that time, was also reviewed by Junyent. Poleo had a number of exhibitions in Paris, and his shows at the Galerie Drouant are considered of great importance in terms of critical documentation of his work. Junyent’s presence in Paris, as a witness to this event, underscores the importance of this document.
