Carmelo Sobrino (1948) belongs to that generation of Puerto Rican artists that followed the masters of Social Realism in the fifties. In this painting, Sobrino, with his uniquely playful ease in portraying the human figure, presents a typical beach scene: children playing, people working on their tans or walking along the beach, lovers embracing, figures dancing, and all under a scorching sun and the rhythms that materialize, literally, into musical notes.
