  • Description: A leading figure of the Havana School and a close friend of José Gómez Sicre, the founder and first director of AMA, Carreño was an important early advocate of abstraction in Cuba. His paintings of the later 1940s and ‘50s moved away from the lush exuberance of his earlier, more figurative work, drawing out the universality of Cuba’s vernacular imagery through plastic color and geometric forms. A vibrant example from this period, Untitled explores rich tonalities of green and yellow that frame stylized, totemic forms within a flattened pattern of abstraction. -Text by Abigail McEwen
