Art of the World Gallery’s next exhibition will feature one of the most important contemporary Latin American artists, Julio Larraz.

More than 30 works of art of the most important living Cuba born and raised artist will be on display. Among the exhibition are a variety of paintings, watercolors and sculptures. 

Larraz’s artwork depicts romantic prints, nostalgia of a bourgeois world already gone, possibly from Cuba before the revolution, dictators, sophisticated women, men with power and a life of luxury.

His work is inspired by figurative tradition, but expands various points of views such as conceptual, stylistic and thematic. Best known for his precise and detailed technique, his enigmatic imagination, and his unique subtle, elegant touch and style has all helped affirm his reputation.

“We are thrilled to feature Julio Larraz in our second show and allow for our clients to explore their imagination with each of his paintings,” said Mauricio Vallejo Co-Director of Art of the World Gallery. “We hope our collection of Larraz’s art stimulates the mind and leaves a positive impression on everyone who visits our venue.”

Larraz is a master in provoking curiosity, producing a desire in the viewer to fully understand the events and interactions depicted in his scenic works. Master of color, Julio Larraz is bringing a versatile attractive depiction of the private life of politicians, aristocrats, religious characters, ocean views and the beauty of nature.

Proving to be the master of color in Giacomo Casanova at La Maestranza, oil on canvas, Julio Larraz once again acknowledges the famous works of renowned artist Monet, Van Gogh, and Goya. Larraz captures the high class of a successful gentleman, dressed in a white suit; enjoying his drink as he gazes off into the distance, a scene captured perfectly in time. The Julio Larraz exhibition is a tidal wave of power, elegance, mystery and mastery of color.

  • Hey! I just want to give an enormous thumbs up for the good information you’ve gotten right here on this post. I shall be coming again to your blog for extra soon.

  • Julio Fernandez Larraz es todo eso que se dice de el, y mucho mas. Su color, en una tradición de su país natal, desde el campo a la Academia y de vuelta al campo, Es siempre sincero y escueto, sin cuentos ni dobleces: casi siempre sorprendente y hasta asombroso por ir directo al punto.
    El manejo de las imágenes, desde lo iconico hasta lo banal, surge de una imaginación capaz de crear lo real o lo imaginario, siempre acorde y coherente con la voluntad de un artista completo.
