Miguel Angel Battegazzore (Uruguay 1931) is an emblematic figure of Uruguayan art.  

Painter, sculptor, writer, essayist, teacher, set designer, producer of various audiovisuals, his work has been exhibited in different parts of the world harvesting throughout his prolific career, notable distinctions. 

In his plastic evolution he went from abstraction to a very personal figuration in which he reinterprets the symbolic world established by Joaquín Torres García. Methodical and tireless in his experimental eagerness, he imposes in his permanent work a great fertility of ideas. 

His works are in the “Juan Manuel Blanes” Museum; National Museum of Visual Arts of Montevideo; Museum of American Art; Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon; Pablo Atchugarry Foundation and important Uruguayan and foreign private collections.
