In this class, you will learn about one of the first artists to revalue the black aesthetic in Latin America and use it to transform European modernism from within. Although he was considered the "Picasso of Latin America," you will learn how far he was from that category and how much his proposals were unique and groundbreaking. 




En esta clase aprenderás sobre uno de los primeros artistas en revalorar la estética negra en America Latina, usandola igualmente para transformar el modernismo europeo desde dentro. Aunque fue considered como el "Picasso de América Latina", aprenderás no solo el problema de esta categoría sino que tan únicas e innovadoras fueron sus propuestas.
