Description

The paintings of Fernando Zobel (1924-1984) in the early 1950s were stylized figurations of daily life usually done with bright patches of color and a flat perspective. This composition seems to anticipate the artist’s later period of non-objectivism. The red kite occupies more than a half of the picture plane, almost covering the boy’s figure.
