Paintings by prominent cuban artist exhibited
The Servando Cabrera Museum and Library, which is dedicated to the life and work of that prominent Cuban artist, is hosting an exhibition of Cabrera's paintings in which women's faces are the main topic.
The exhibition entittled Â¨Las Damas de ServandoÂ¨ (Â¨Servando's LadiesÂ¨), which marks the 84th anniversary of the artist's birth, consists of seven paintings that show women's figures as a leitmotiv. Some of the paintings on display are "Alicia Alonso en Giselle" (1946), "Soledad" (1975) and "Retrato de Teresa" (1979). The latter was inspired on the Cuban film "Portrait of Teresa".
The paintings show Cabrera's work in the 1940s, which is marked by soft postimpressionism influenced by academic standards and Pablo Picaso's Pink, Blue and Neoclassic periods. Servando Cabrera (1923-1981) is one of Cuba's most important painters, whose legacy has transcended national borders.
