Josep Guinovart, close to the Dau al Set group in the early 50s, created this work not long after he had founded, together with Modest Cuixart, Jordi, Jaume Muxart, Joan Josep Tharrats and Antoni Tàpies, the short-lived group Tahull. In the context of this group he took his first steps in the direction of material abstraction, intensifying the use of collage and assemblage, utilizing humble materials such as windows, pieces of wood, plates, etc., from his own immediate surroundings.---L’arbre seems to announce the then still incipient tendency of the artist Josep Guinovart to combine abstract forms and natural elements. Influenced by Robert Rauschenberg as regards the valorizing of the object, L’arbre also clearly reveals a certain proximity to the sculpture of Alberto, as well as to the work of Joan Miró and Benjamin Palencia.
