About Oswaldo Guayasamin (1919-1999) ~
"He was a man of Latin American conviction and a fighter for democracy. His work reflects his deep commitment to social progress and to people who have been ignored and exploited. America loses one of the most outstanding men in the world of art but also one of the most loyal and humanistic ones that our America has produced in its entire history. There is no word to express the feelings and memories I have and will always have about this man who has given his best for our people. His memory will stay with us and will be a permanent encouragement for those who seek a better future for humanity."
