The Annual Stanley and Pearl Goodman Lecture on La...

Presented by NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale

In 1938, Afro-Cuban artist Wifredo Lam arrived in Paris where he quickly gained the support of Pablo Picasso and was inspired by the dreamlike work of the Surrealists. When he returned to Cuba (1941 to 1951), he created some of his most expressive works of art, fusing surrealism and magic realism to create a hybrid style that would signal a new direction for modern art in Latin America.

In the 1950s, he joined his friend, the Danish painter Asger Jorn, a founder of the post-World War II avant-garde art movement Cobra, in the Italian coastal town Albissola, where they and other Cobra artists worked in the historic ceramic workshops. Lam became so consumed by this medium that he returned to Albissola multiple times, eventually buying a house there in 1961.
