A newly acquired work by Ateneo Art Cuba (2014), a painting by José A. Oliva. Woman and Fish. Oil on card. 17 1/4 inches by 13 5/8 inches.
Fábrica de Arte Cubano is closed for renovations for about a month. Sometimes in Cuba, it is difficult to find out what’s on and what might be closed at the time one visits Havana. We dropped by the Fábrica de Arte Cubano (olive oil factory in the former El Cocinero) near the Puente de Hierro (bridge) one night January 6th, longing for a night of music and art.
