El Lago is an art naïve vision of the devastation of the earth by global warming. It is a bleak vision of Nature, the death of the earth, the red clouds and the naked trees. This painting by the Cuban artist, Yuri Moreno was painted in 1997.
It is interesting that a common theme evident in the works of Yuri Moreno focused so closely on environmental issues before many nations or individuals were even considering mankind’s destruction of Nature.
Moreno comes from Santiago de Cuba and was a part of the Cuban artists group Cara-jo in Santiago. He now lives in France.
The painting is composed of oil on canvas and measures 56 x 37 cm.
