Artist's description:

Mixed Media (acrylic, collage and texture paste) on canvas

0.90 x 0.60

* The gardener is a song of love and the feelings that can be felt during a relationship and at the end of a relationship of love.
Violeta Parra compares these feelings with flowers, and these are all represented in her dress and her wreath..


* Violeta del Carmen Parra Sandoval (4 October 1917 - 5 February 1967) was a Chilean composer, songwriter, folklorist, ethnomusicologist and visual artist (paintings, ceramics, and tapestries).
She set the basis for the Nueva canción chilena, a renewal and a reinvention of Chilean folk music.

. ◾However, Violeta attracted much more attention and renown abroad than at home. Between 1961 and 1965 she returned to Europe, where she performed ceaselessly at everywhere from small bars to the halls of the United Nations.

* Her most renowned song, Gracias a la Vida (Thanks to Life), was popularized throughout Latin America by Mercedes Sosa and later in the US by Joan Baez.
◾In 1964, Violeta became the first Latin American to show her work as a stand-alone exhibit in Parisian museum The Louvre.
