> DESCRIPTION


Although there wasn’t any other group focused on abstraction after Los Once and Diez Pintores Concretos, isolated artists did most of their oeuvre in this vein. One of them was Raúl Milián (1914-1984). His work shows the continuation and development of abstraction in Cuban art. 

 

Milián’s work is characterized by a very personal and intimate approach. His trademark works in ink are like divertimentos. In these pieces we can see how he balanced the ‘controlled’ line versus the fortuitous, mastering the process. The delicate lines of his compositions make us remember old labyrinths or fantastic maps. A self-taught artist, Milián lived a very private life, almost away from the lights and the public.
