Another new acquisition for Ateneo Art Cuba. This dark painting is called “Man with a Hat at Night,” by Cuban artist Omar Alonso. Alonso lives in Havana and has a small gallery in old Havana.
The work is acrylic on card and measures 21 x 26 inches. Alonso said he has painted a character from another time in a ghostly way. In the work, he attempted to drag out the psychological aspect of the austere personality in a time “when the canons of conduct were very tough.”
This painting is now a part of our collection. It is available for sale from Ateneo Art Cuba on our Cuban art sales page.
