One of 800 copies. Paez Vilaro was a self-taught artist who in the 1940's moved into the "Mediomundo" tenement in Montivideo and became a student of the afro-uruguayan life - the native dances, funerals, weddings, laundry women, etc. These drawings reflect his respect and understanding of this vibrant culture.
