Description of El Guateque
‘Guateque’ is a Spanish word for some sort of party mainly attended by ‘guajiros’ (the Cuban farm workers) . The painting shows a man a a woman dancing while two other men play the guitar and the bongos. The men are wearing ‘guayaberas’ , straw hats and old-fashioned black and white shoes. The lady is wearing a sexy red dress, red shoes and a flower in her flowing black hair.
There are several small buttoms attached to the guayaberas.
The colors are deep earth tones (ochre, siena, brown) with red, blue and green accents.
The original has been sold, but giclees in different sizes can be ordered. Contact me for more info.
