IN FINITO. Carlos Quintana
At the Palazzo Loredan, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba are presenting Carlos Quintana: In Finito.
A vast selection of enormous canvases, some measuring more than five metres, in addition to a group of mirrors by Quintana and architectural drawings.
The place become a kind of workshop from 11 May to 29 July
Quintana says he paints life stories; he believes in the spiritual benefit of art for human beings and advocates for freedom in the interpretation of visual works of art.
His main references are Goya, Picasso and William Turner.
He is fascinated by the first’s so-called Black Paintings, the second’s ability to cover everything masterfully and the third’s watercolours of the fire of the Houses of Parliament which occurred in the first half of the nineteenth century.
