Mid-century Cuban-American painter. This painting was sold through the John Wannamaker department store in Philadelphia with that stamp on verso. Macy’s, one of Wannamaker’s leading competitors at the time, mounted a massive Latin American Fair in New York City the previous decade, sparking interest in Latin American art and cultural artifacts. The Wannamaker’s building at 770 Broadway, between 8th and 9th, is home to Facebook’s New York headquarters.
