Grapes in the Backyard

Artist / Designer / Creator:


1.5 × 32 × 50 in | cm
The side profile of the female subject in this portrait by Carlos Gamez de Francisco is surrounded by colorful flowers, dark green, verdant leaves and lush purple grapes. Her neck is elegant and statuesque. Her hair is pulled back in a dramatic coiffure. The lively palette of the flora and fruit in the background mimics the bright patterns on the woman's colorful clothing. Cuban-born artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco's paintings are inspired by history and his upbringing in post-revolutionary Cuba. The resulting work provides an escape from reality and invents an illusory world, figments of the artist's memories and their storytelling.
