“Guayasamín is one of the last crusaders of imaginismo. He is a creator of humanity in its broadest sense, of the living and historical imagination. His universe is sustaining although it threatens us like a cosmic disaster. Think before approaching his painting because it will not be easy to withdraw.”—Pablo Neruda
“To paint is to pray. To paint is to scream.”—Oswaldo Guayasamín
Two great masters combine to make an impassioned plea for the dignity and sovereignty of Latin America. Here Pablo Neruda’s incisive political words accompany the transcendent art of indigenous Ecuadorian painter Oswaldo Guayasamín. As firm friends and huge admirers of each other’s work, these two brilliant Latin American artists create a compelling portrait of a continent.

Pablo Neruda is one of Latin America's best-loved poets, his most famous work being "Canto General." Born in Chile, and widely respected for his outspoken political views, he died only days after the coup against the popularly elected Allende government in September 1973. Guayasamín is generally considered Diego Rivera's successor as Latin America's most prominent artist. Deemed an expressionist, and with evident indigenous roots, the humanist spirit of Oswaldo Guayasamín´s work reflects the pain and misery endured by much of humanity during the last century but at the same time he conveys great human dignity and tenderness.
