Reviews

"This is a fine contribution to the analysis of a major Cuban and Latin American artist, and it is perhaps the first of its kind. While it is focused on a particular painter, the book manages to help lay the foundations for a philosophical analysis of art in general. It is a useful addition to a growing literature of philosophical works on aesthetics." - Eduardo Mendieta, author of Global Fragments: Globalizations, Latinamericanisms, and Critical Theory "Gracia has managed to fit discussion of important philosophical themes very well with the exploration of the artwork, which is fascinating and deserves attention." - Charles Burroughs, Case Western Reserve University
