Wifredo Lam Biography and Important Works

Wifredo Lam is not only a major artist in Cuba but also the first artist of color in art historiography. He was a member of the movement Niggerism. Lam’s style is the result of his habitual travels, primitive graffiti with clear Cubist influences in a Surrealist mood. By then an artist of international fame, Lam tried to combine Paris, the city of his adoption, with Cuba, his native country and with Albissola Marina in Italy, a town chosen by his family as a peaceful place. Today, some of the artist’s works belong to the Tate gallery's collections in London, some to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, some to the Museum of Modern Art in New York and some to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
