Please join us at the Miami Art+Design Fair for the first US exhibition since 1925 of the Cuban-born artist Federico Beltrán-Masses. In 1924 the painter was invited to exhibit at the Wildenstein galleries in New York City. A sell-out exhibitions in Palm Beach and Los Angeles followed the next year. Born in Cuba and raised in Barcelona, Beltran's Hispanic heritage would influence his oeuvre throughout an international career; his languorously posed women often appear before nocturnal landscapes of Cuba and Spain, in open starry skies. Like his friend, Kees van Dongen, Beltrán captured the escapism that characterised post-First World War society and the Jazz age in sensual subject paintings and portraits of the era's most famous figures, be them Kings or Hollywood actresses.
