Wifredo Lam - Interlude Marseille

Helena H. Benitez was introduced to the artist Wifredo Lam in Barcelona sometimes before May 1938, when the artist left for Paris. She again met Wifredo in Paris in 1939, and they become friends, and more. The events described in this memoir occured the wartime period of 1940-41. In march 1941 Wifredo Lam and Helena H. Benitez sailed from Marseille, arriving in Havanna, Cuba that August. There Wifredo immediately startede painting, and many critics consider the canvases he produced between 1942 and 1951 among his best and most evocative work. Helena H. Benitez and Wifredo Lam married in 1944 and divorced in 1951. By that time she was living in New York and married Fabian Benitez in 1951

The internationally renowned Cuban painter Wifredo Lam (1902-1982) was a precursor of a cross-cultural style of painting, infusing Western modernism with African and Caribbean symbolism. His peripatetic life brought him into contact with all the avant-garde movements of his times―cubism, surrealism, CoBrA―whose incentives for greater freedom in art, for unleashing the unconscious, and for exploring the “marvelous” through automatic writing had great impact on his work. But Lam never lost sight of the world around him and like his friend Aimé Césaire took on the struggle “to paint the drama of his country, the cause and spirit of the blacks.” He invented a highly original voice that speaks in the name of “defending human dignity” and “saluting freedom.”
