This is one of a number of Venezuelan paintings that we purchased from the personal collection of Former Ambasssador to the United States from Venezuela Gerardo E. Wills. These paintings truly show the lively personality of the Venezuelan people. They have certainly faced enormous challenges, but I hope they will continue to find joy in colorful artwork that conveys a sense of happiness.
