On a forgotten heroine of Cuban concrete art The Cuban abstract painter Loló Soldevilla (1901–71) started her artistic career rather late. Initially working as a teacher, Soldevilla did not begin studying art until 1949, when she started at the Paris Académie de la Grande Chaumière with the sculptors Leopold Kretz and Ossip Zadkine, where she also learned about concrete art.Soldevilla 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 midcentury. 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.Loló Soldevilla: Constructing Her Universe is the first monograph devoted to her remarkable achievements, providing compelling insight into the life and work of this exceptional artist.
