Looking Closely at Surrealist Art: Cundo Bermúdez's "Cinco Figuras"
This teaching collection focuses on the surrealist artwork of Cuban artist, Cundo Bermúdez (1914-2008), entitled "Cinco Figuras" from the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum's collections. By applying the Project Zero Visible Thinking Routine, "See, Think, Wonder" to the artwork, teachers can lead students in a discussion that allows them to make observations and support interpretations with details, while noting areas for further exploration.
Additional resources are included in this collection to help contextualize the artist, his life and other related works.
