Scholarly Paragon Portraits
Lita Cabellut's Human Knowledge Paintings Feature Academics

By: Jordy Eleni (Superstar) Dec 5, 12

Lita Cabullet’s latest exhibition titled ‘A Portrait of Human Knowledge’ highlights some of academia’s headlining names with her paintings of Sigmund Freud, Billy Holiday, Rudolf Steiner and Marie Curie.

The cracked lines that are found throughout the pieces in the A Portrait of Human Knowledge canon stem from her interest in the historic fresco technique. She came to admire the work of Goya, Velaquez, Ribera and Rembrandt when she was just 13, and has since explored their methods via her own illustrations.

Cabullet’s troubled past influenced the course of her artistic development. She grew up within an impoverished Gypsy community in Barcelona and was later adopted during her teenage years. Her early introduction to the Prado museum encouraged her creative inclinations, and she later traveled to Amsterdam where she attended the Rietveld Academy.
