Period: The Vanguard
1913 - 1997
Alfredo Lozano was born in Havana, Cuba in 1913. He attended both the San Alejandro Academy of Arts in Cuba and the Escuela Libre de Escultura y Talla Directa in Mexico for very brief periods. When he returned to Cuba, he elected to work with the Estudio Libre de Pintura y Escultura where he, along with Rita Longa, served as advisors for the Department of Sculpture. His primary work as a sculptor was in wood and stone, but later he experimented extensively with terracota, tin, and steel.
