General Description

Chilean painter, engraver, and instructor Rodolfo Opazo Bernales has been an active figure in Latin American art since the 1950s. At that time, the majority of his contemporaries abandoned figural forms for abstraction; Opazo Bernales did the reverse. In contrast to the discordant assemblage of shapes seen in Inner Landscape, his later works embrace the human form.
