The 1950 Self-Portrait, with its anguished expression, holds a certain farewell to Europe, to Matisse, to the cultural profile of the air being left behind (…) the first fully abstract pictures also date from 1950, some of which were to interest Betty Parsons, who showed them in a collective exhibition.



The expression captured in that Self-Portrait, Guerrero’s expression, was the result of an education which, although not corresponding to any programme, was not as random as might appear, and was to continue throughout all his work to follow, where Guerrero shows himself to be a refined artist, able to choose his own influences and references unaffected by the debates or fashions of the moment.
