Sumario: This paper analyzes the conceptualization of cosmic art conceived by the Costa Rican artist Manuel de la Cruz González Luján, by the study and analysis of the archives of González-Kreysa family, and especially on the text of the lecture “The art as cosmic integration”, delivered in Maracaibo, Venezuela, in 1957. In such a text, he expresses a series of affirmations about art and the fruit of its contact with other fields of knowledge, as science, and in general with nature, as it has been observed by artists and scientists through the history of western civilization.
