    how to project life.”

    “By the end of 1968 Eiriz stopped painting, and by 1969 she resigned from teaching at Cubanacan art school. Her paintings were seen as conflictive and defeatist by the Revolution’s cultural establishment… She stated ‘if my painting is so problematic, I will stop painting, and it will be their loss.’”

    - Professor Alejandro Anreus, Ph. D
    Art Journal, Vol. 63, Fall 2004, page 13.

    “Antonia Eiriz was one of the leading artists of the 1960’s generation in Cuba and a myth in her own time… her 1960’s images are outbursts of rage at the human condition in the best modern tradition of Francisco Goya, James Ensor and Francis Bacon. The violence and drama of her works signify not only a generalized tragic view of humanity, they symbolize the uncertain time and place in which Eiriz lived.”

    - Professor Juan A. Martínez, Ph.D
