Published to coincide with the first comprehensive exhibition ever mounted in the United States devoted to the work of Loló Soldevilla, this fully-illustrated monograph features essays by Rafael DiazCasas and Olga Viso. Loló Soldevilla: Constructing Her Universe is the first publication devoted to her remarkable achievements, providing compelling insight into the life and work of this exceptional artist.
Dolores Soldevilla Nieto (1901–1971) was a passionate Cuban artist whose career blossomed in the 1950s. Following early professional turns, she emerged later in life as a prolific artist and fervent advocate for culture. She became Cuba’s cultural attaché to Europe, embarking on a path that would dramatically alter the course of her life and the discourse surrounding Cuban abstraction at mid-century. Residing in Paris, she studied in the ateliers of prominent European artists and, after returning to Cuba, she played an active role as a vital link between the European avant-garde and the new voices of abstraction emerging throughout Latin America and Cuba.
