Boy with Umbrella exemplifies the return of Enrique Grau’s work to figurative painting during the 1960s. In the foreground, there is the naked and illuminated torso of a young man holding a black umbrella over his head. It is not raining in the room, thus, by not fulfilling its objective, the black umbrella, which occupies most of the top part of the painting, proclaims itself as a symbol—of tragic resonance?
