Ósip Mandel’štám, detail


Biblioteca Nacional José Martí · La Habana · March, 2017

Whit a series of large paintings, on the occasion of the centenary of the Russian revolution, Herrero presents a series of 15 portraits of Russian intellectuals, who were persecuted and killed during the Stalinist era. The theme of incarceration and destruction of art and freedom of thought by the political authority is the theme of brutality against fragility and these subjects are the symbol of the price paid for the simple fact of being free thinkers.
