Antonio Berni (1905-1981) is a major Argentinean artist. He is an important exponent of the Nuevo Realismomovement, the Latin American extension of social realism. His works are often focused on poverty, urbanization and the effects of industrialization on the most fragile.

Berni MALBA

Berni created a very cohesive universe with a series of characters that he followed throughout his works. Among these characters, Juanito and Ramona play an important part. In the late 1960s, a child called Juanito Laguna appeared in Berni’s cosmology. He is one of the first of his characters. Juanito is the son of factory worker. He represents all stray children that used to inhabit Buenos Aires poor neighborhoods and slums. Raised in the streets, Juanito is poor but resourceful. Berni depcts him playing in the streets, using a collage technique with industrial wastes, pieces of fabric and cardboard.

Ramona Montiel is another important character in Antonio Berni’s cosmology. Ramona worked as a seamstress but, lured by a life of luxury, she turns to prostitution. Berni was inspired for this character by Parisians cabarets. He used laces, fine fabrics and accessories to recreated a Belle Epoque atmosphere.
