  1. How wonderful to sit at the feet of a true master and hear what he has to say and possibly teach about his life and art!

  2. We have two wonderful paintings by this artist and previously knew very little about him. Thank you for the information.

    • Thank you Tara. I appreciate your visiting my site and Gilberto is a real master. I feel privileged to have met him and to have been allowed to visit his home and private collection. Now in his late eighties, he still radiates enthusiasm and a bit of mischief as well.
