Agustin completed more than 530 works of art–that is how many he listed in his notebooks. This website is a catalogue raisonne of those works.
He numbered each piece in the notebooks and on the piece, as a composer’s works are often accounted for with opus numbers which we included here, prior to the name of the piece. He started the notebooks after arriving in the U.S. so they contain works done here and some done in Spain.
He grouped many of his works into “Collections”, listed here by way of links to the Collections, and More for items not a part of a collection. Additional items may be added that he did not list in his notebooks.
Photographs are included whenever possible, some taken by the site team and some taken by the owner of the item. Others may come from other resources discovered along the way. Although photographs cannot capture art as the artist intended it to be seen, they do make it possible to experience a body of work that is otherwise not accessible.
The site may never be finished since additional information, additional photographs and additional works may be added.
Speaking for the site team, we hope visitors to the site enjoy this look into the life of an artist, which may lead to curiosity about creativity, its origins and application that, along with the ability, the wherewithal, and the necessity to do the work.
Some answers may be within the pages of Agustin’s book, The Killer Flies of Luxor, published by Penny-a-page Press, 2023.
Laurence Jarvik, publisher and friend, said of the book:
"A magical realist combination of memoir, novel, travelogue, quest, fantasy, and meditation on identity, history, art, theatre, music, and cinema as the author's surrealistic picaresque tale unfolds across centuries and eras from Cuba, Egypt, Paris, Madrid, Montreal to Washington, DC."
The art and book of Agustin are inexplicably entwined.
Laurence Jarvik was instrumental in the creation of this website as well convincing Agustin to let him publish the book and more, too voluminous and significant to mention here.
Thanks also go to numerous friends for their input including photographs of works in their possession.
Heavy appreciation goes to the I.T. member of the team John Dadia, for his enthusiasm, insights and patience.
