Carlos Enríquez Gómez (August 3, 1900 - May 2, 1957)

He was a Cuban painter, illustrator and writer of the Vanguardia movement (the Cuban Avant-garde).  Along with Víctor Manuel, Amelia Peláez, Fidelio Ponce and Antonio Gattorno, and other masters of this period, he was involved in one of the most fertile moments in Cuban culture.  He is considered by critics to be one of the best Cuban artists of the 20th century.

Carlos Enríquez strived to develop a genuinely Cuban style that, while fueled by surrealism and modernism, took inspiration from Cuba's landscapes, culture, social problems and way of living.  He was also considered a rebel, and was often criticized for the allegedly explicit nature of his nudes, and for his bohemian lifestyle.  He died in his studio.
