Resumen del Libro
Monograph on artist who alternated between painting and cinematography, and who lived in Paris and then in Washington for many years before settling in the Margarita Island off the Venezuelan shore. Book concentrates on his work as a painter, going back to artists beginnings in the town of El Tocuyo where he was born in 1927. From this rural reality, Hurtados interest in landscape evolved to his present-day work. Excellent reproductions, good bibliography and biblio-filmography, and a clear text make this book a prime source for understanding Hurtados life and work –Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
