About Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda is one of Latin America's best-loved poets, his most famous work being the epic poem "Canto General." Born in Chile, and widely respected for his outspoken political views, he died only days after the coup against the popularly elected Allende government in September 1973. Oswaldo Guayasamin is generally considered Diego Rivera's successor as Latin America's most prominent artist. Deemed an expressionist, and with evident indigenous roots, the humanist spirit of Oswaldo Guayasamins work reflects the pain and misery endured by much of humanity during the last century but at the same time he conveys a sense of human dignity and great tenderness. He died in 1999.
