Tras la huella de un olvidado: el viaje de Gil García desde España

Through the lecture, Professor Alvarez will re-introduce Juan Gil Garcia, and shed light on the importance of this artistic figure in early 20th century Cuban art. The Spanish-born painter, who garnered considerable commercial success throughout his lifetime for his still-life works and landscapes, pioneered the painting of the flora and fruits of his adopted Cuba. Professor Alvarez will also explore the painter and his times, where Gil Garcia and others formed the generational link between tradition and modernity.
