Agustín Fernández: Armaduras
Agustín Fernández (b. 1928, Havana; d. 2006, New York) is an indispensable figure among Cuban artists and within international postwar modernism. Although he did not consider himself a Surrealist or a strictly erotic painter, Fernández developed a distinctive pictorial practice that explored the relationships between eroticism and violence, human anatomy and machinery, and unconscious yearnings and obsessions. After leaving Cuba in 1959, Fernández lived in Paris and San Juan, before settling in New York in 1972.
