Rostros de la modernidad is the name of the exhibition staged at the National Fine Arts Museum dedicated to the very best of modern portrait

A pleasant exhibition for its diversity approaches a kind genre in the Cubans’ taste: the portrait. From the physiognomic portrait to more experimental visions of this artistic type, the exhibition recalls the great personalities of Cuban arts, among them Wifredo Lam, Jorge Arche, Mario Carreño, Ponce de León, Amelia Peláez, Cundo Bermúdez and others.

The traces of the Fine Arts Academy which these artists opposed, despite being educated there, stand out in the selected pieces.

However, these traces do not disappear from the compositions, or the classifications, or the technical skill these artists were able to display with other styles.

It is advisable to look into the expertise of our best modern artists; many of them specialized in other genres like landscape. Now making portraits of friends, politicians, sponsors or contemporary, they interpret the portrayed rather than copy.

Owning the vibrant color, the rhythm, the lively compositions and the finished manufacture, they grabbed the attention of visitors to the exhibition site of such an admirable museology through a gallery of dear characters for the Cuban popular culture.

Open to the public during the first days of May, the exhibition deserves a visit in family, the possibility for rediscovering the charm of vivid portrait as an un-transferable experience.
