In room #104, visitors will have the opportunity to admire a spectacular portrait of José Martí, the great Cuban politician and writer, its author being Juan Manuel Freire, a Miami artist. It is important to emphasize that it is not an ordinary portrait: On a canvas measuring 56 x 66 inches (1.42 x 1.68 mts) the artist has pasted more than 650 photos of the most important buildings and monuments that existed in Cuba during the 1920’s in its six provinces. On the frame, those six provinces are represented by their emblems, territories and photos of their outgoing political forces at the time. In short, it is an artwork which comprises several steps: beginning with the idea itself, the research for photographs, the design of the portrait itself by using each one of the photos which had to be shaped up to conform the features, expression and shape of Jose Marti’s face. In almost all the photos monuments, buildings and residences are easily identified (under the right eye visitors will immediately realize the photo is that of the Havana Terminal Railway Station and under the left eye the photo shown is that of the Hotel Continental Colón , Province of Matanzas, etc.) This artwork will be exhibited at Room #104 together with paintings from the Museum Collection
