Carmelo González was born in Havana, Cuba on July 16, 1920. The artist died in his native city on August 10, 1990.
“A single concern has determined Carmelo’s course since he began painting: the drawing, or outline. This concern arose in him spontaneously during his first years of study, when he understood that painting, like all art, is an obstinately rigorous craft that can only be reached through the narrowest of doors... Hence he has been able to enjoy engraving, a craft in which a mastery of drawing is more necessary... As a painter, Carmelo is characterized by his personal style. It is hard not to identify him immediately... Seeing his paintings, we have to confess that they are solidly constructed, with the solidity of the masters of yesteryear.”
