Framed Pastel on Cardboard signed Fidelio Ponce de Leon (1895 - 1949). Cuban
Fidelio Ponce de Leon was the pseudonym of Alfredo Fuentes Pons, a Cuban painter. A native of Camagney, he studied at the San Alejandro Academy in Havana from 1913 until 1918. Along with Antonio Gattorno, Victor Manuel, Amelia Pelaez, and Wifredo Lam, he is considered part of the "Vanguardia" movement in Cuban art; however, unlike many of his contemporaries he never studied in Europe, and so had comparatively little contact with European modernism.
