“Café Els Quatre Gats” by Jose Rodeiro, Medium: Acrylic on Canvas. 2013. Size: 18” x 24”.  Pablo Picasso’s youthful, light-gray ghostlike frontal-shadow enters the door of the famous Barcelona café, while four cats pose around a table. A beaded curtain leads to the secret room wherein hidden from view three unseen Catalan painters (Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas, and Isidor Nonnell) are drinking absinth waiting for Picasso to join them. The image has an allusion to Hanover Merz-Art master Kurt Schwitters, who said,“I am a painter, who nails my pictures together . . .” Hermeneutically, all Art is open to perpetual and infinite interpretation(s), as demonstrated by this brief description. Rodeiro, art history professor at NJCU, is art editor of Ragazine.CC. The painting is on display at MDC Museum of Art & Design Freedom Tower, Miami, Florida until July 12.
