Antonio Berni was one of Argentina’s most popular and prolific artists, with a career that spanned sixty years and incorporated the influences of Surrealism, social realism, and Pop art. He maintained an interest in class issues throughout his career, and is perhaps best known for his depictions of Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel, two fictitious characters from the slums of Buenos Aires. Berni detailed events in their lives that unfolded in his work as a sort of ongoing serial. In many of these pieces he used collage extensively, adhering bits of garbage and detritus to the canvas as a critique of consumer society.
