A celebrated painter, photographer, and printmaker, Tomás Sánchez is best known for his sublime, painted landscapes and waterscapes that inspire comparisons to the Hudson River School and Caspar David Friedrich. These meticulously painted works are inspired, in part, by Sánchez’s practice of yoga and meditation, as he states, “The interior spaces that I experience in meditation are converted into the landscapes of my paintings.”

In this early work, Sanchez depicts José Martí leading a parade of cheering citizens through the streets while other similarly cheering people look on from roofs and porches.
