Juan Larrea (Bilbao, March 13, 1895–Córdoba, Argentina, July 9, 1980) was a Spanish essayist and poet.

He studied literature at the University of Salamanca, and moved later to Paris where he published in French language the magazine Favorables París Poema with César Vallejo. After Spanish Civil War, he moved definitively to the Americas, where he was an active member of the cultural life. He was an incessant collector and some of his collections about Inca art were donated to the National Archaeological Museum of Spain in 1937.[1]
