Alfredo Rostgaard was a Cuban artist who was known for his emotionally charged abstract works. He was born in 1935 in Santa Clara, Cuba and began painting at the age of 12. Eventually, he went on to pursue a degree in Fine Arts in Santiago de Cuba. After this period of formal education, he dedicated himself to exploring abstract painting throughout the 1950s and 60s. His works focused on the human figure, often depicting emotions like solitude, grief, and pleasure. As his artwork matured, he experimented with curving lines, vibrant colors, and gestural movements, to represent the complexity of human nature. Among his most notable works is his 1960 piece entitled “The Silent Observer”, which exhibited Rostgaard’s expressive style and remains one of his most iconic works. Other important works by Rostgaard include “The Life Raft” (1966) and “The Journey” (1975).
