Argentinean artist Guillermo Kuitca was born today in 1961. This painting, Untitled, from our collection addresses Kuitca’s position as an artist of Jewish background in overwhelmingly Catholic country. The tensely juxtaposed symbols - the menorah and the cross - intensify the highly charged psychology of the vacant stage set, evoking feelings of angst, emptiness, and loss.
