Domingo Liz, who was a sculptor, painter and draftsman, graduated from the National School of Fine Arts and received special guidance from the sculptor Manolo Pascual. From 1950 to 1953 he studied painting with Jaime Colson. In 1968 he was a founding member of the Proyecta group. He presented his first solo exhibition at 1971, in the then National Gallery of Modern Art, today Museum of Modern Art of Santo Domingo.

Liz is one of the indispensable Dominican creators when critically and reflexively evaluating the history of national art. Your role as multidisciplinary artist, provoking ruptures and deeply coherent in its production, adds to the importance of its renovating role and to his position as a teacher of generations. In this installment we present the work Drawing of 1964.

Drawing, of horizontal composition, offers the scene of three human figures, thin, naked, with black features and sitting on a dock, where they fish. Water, canes, fish and sky with sparkles, complement the agenda. 

These data were obtained from the book Eduardo León Jimenes Collection of Visual Arts: Estructure and content projection, transcendence, edited by Leon Center.
