Venus of Limon Province
Eugenia Barrionuevo is a prolific painter of our women artists collection and resident of the Caribbean Province of Limón on the east coast of Costa Rica. Women, children, family and neighborhood scenes make up her regional studies and portraits of Costa Rica’s Afro-Caribean population of Limón.
This particular piece by the artist is a homage to women of this community – Venus of Limon – the centre of family love and a bastion of Afro-Caribbean culture the dignified women of this coast are definitely a worthy subject matter for portraying.
