The author, a great friend of Cuba with more than 60 years of work, expressed great satisfaction to return to the country where she studied painting at the National School of Art (ENA) and to which she owes gratitude and loyalty.
Along with her works, the visitors to the museum, located in the historic center of Havana, can admire the pictorial art of her sister, Isabel Bustos, a winner of Cuba’s National Dance Award and director of Danza-Retazos theater company, who also works in the world of brush and graffiti.
Ecuadorian Ambassador in Havana, Jose Maria Borja, said that the author is outstanding for her mastery of drawing and her use of color.
Pilar Bustos dedicated the exhibition to Nela Martínez Espinosa, her country’s first woman legislator, who was a tireless fighter for the rights of workers, indigenous and humble people, and was considered a friend of Cuba by leader Fidel Castro.
The exhibition coincides with the 201st anniversary of the Battle of Pichincha on May 24, 1822, which sealed the independence of what is now the Republic of Ecuador and is under the sponsorship of the Ecuadorian Embassy in Havana.
The display is open to the public until June 24.
