Antonia Eiriz In Context. Neo-figurative painter Antonia Eiriz (1929 -1995) is one of the most significant artists of her generation. Eiriz’s artwork is powerful and somber. Imbued with an audacious expression of angst, human suffering and social criticism, her imagery often connects to other great figures of the art world such as, Goya, Francis Bacon and Edward Munch. This lecture will present the main themes of her paintings in the socio-political context of her time, and relate it to her contemporaries in Latin America.

Cuban Art and Identity: 1900 to 1950 at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, FL

October 19, 2013 – February 2, 2014

Vero Beach Museum of Art

3001 Riverside Park Drive,
Vero Beach, Florida 32963

Cuban Art and Identity: 1900 to 1950 will feature exciting, colorful works of twentieth-century paintings by artists who defined the island nation’s cultural identity. Cuba’s “modernist” painters participated in a global movement in the arts, characterized by a self-conscious break with traditional art styles. These lively works of art will show how artists searched for a sense of national identity by exploring three main themes: Criollismo (rural, folkloric, and peasant subjects), Afro-Cubanism (Cuba’s African heritage), and Barroquismo (Spanish foundational culture). Some of the artists representing these trends will include Mario Carreño, Cundo Bermudez, René Portocarrero, and Mariano Rodriguez.
