The son of Spanish emigrants, Rafaél Pérez Barradas spent most of his artistic life in Spain, where he was soon contributing illustrations to the press. In 1913, he traveled in Italy and France, then settled in Condal. In 1928, he decided to return to Uruguay. He died prematurely of an illness. He is considered to have formed part of the Spanish artistic avant-garde at the beginning of the 1920s. Starting in a Post-Impressionist style that was soon influenced by Gauguin, he rapidly lightened his palette and became interested in the Cubist vision of reality while breaking out of the unitary vision of form. His canvases, with grey and ochre colours, represent landscapes and burlesque scenes from daily life. ...

Painter. Figure compositions.

Gonzalo Cienfuegos Browne studied art at the Catholic University of Chile, the Escuela Nacional de Pintura y Escultura La Esmeralda in Mexico City and the University of Architecture and Art in Chile. He was given a teaching post at the school of fine arts of the Catholic University of Santiago de Chile. It would be tempting to describe Cienfuegos Browne's work as naive, were it not quite apparent that this is a studied naivety, as is also the case with Botero. His painting shows a deliberate awkwardness, a very careful clumsiness with rich, harmonious colours which are, however, deliberately tempered and golden.

Everything in them is enigmatic: the figures, their different postures, the place the scene is set in and the external setting. Characters look often look out at the viewer with no expression.
