Cundo Bermúdez



cundo



Durante un breve periodo colegial (1938) vivió en la Ciudad de México, donde se familiarizó con el trabajo de los muralistas mexicanos, en especial Diego Rivera. Las pinturas de Bermúdez fueron reconocidas por las figuras de colores vívidos y con calidez tropical. Su trabajo tardío, por otra parte, tendía mas a la abstracción, y empleó elementos surreales que incluían relojes, escaleras, y figuras en turbantes. Desilusionado con el gobierno cubano, Bermúdez salió del país a finales de la década del 1960 hacia Puerto Rico, y luego a Estados Unidos. Dos de sus pinturas, El balcón (1941) y Barber Shop (1942), fueron adquiridas por el Museum of Modern Art en Nueva York.

During a brief period of schooling (1938) in Mexico City, he familiarized himself with the mural work of Mexican artists, notably that of Diego Rivera. Bermúdez’s paintings were known for their vividly coloured figures and tropical warmth. His later work, however, tended more toward the abstract and employed surreal imagery that included clocks, ladders, and turbaned figures. Disillusioned with the Cuban government, Bermúdez left the country in the late 1960s for Puerto Rico and later moved to the United States. Two of his paintings, The Balcony (1941) and Barber Shop (1942), were acquired for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York City.
