In the latest installment of Facial Hair of Note, archivist Jennifer Snyder highlights painter Ramón Carulla.
Ramón Carulla was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1938. Today, he lives and works in Miami making figurative art. This photo, taken in 1980, makes me want to put on my sandals and find a margarita so we can sit down and talk about how his latest dream has made its way into his work. Join us?
Jennifer Snyder works with oral history interviews at the Archives American Art. When not sending interviews out for digitization, she is writing about extraordinary examples of facial hair for this blog.
