Vega, Jorge Luis de la (1930–1971)

Jorge Luis de la Vega (b. 27 March 1930; d. 26 August 1971), Argentine painter and draftsman. Vega was born in Buenos Aires and studied architecture at the National University. Believing that nonrepresentational art had reached a dead end, he helped to form the New Figuration Group in 1960. In his work Vega depicts violence with a passionate eloquence that stands in marked contrast to the formal refinement of lyrical abstraction and geometrical art. Over the years he had numerous exhibitions in North and South America.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
