I have been studying the History of Art since I was a child. I specialize in the art of the Ancient World, the Renaissance, and the 20th Century. I am also finishing a Master's in Music Composition.
Among my most studied artists are Kandinsky, Picasso, Malévich, Leonardo da Vinci, Arcimboldo, Armando Reverón, Edward Hopper, El Greco and Velásquez.
My most studied areas include Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Sumeria, Celtic art, Mesoamerica, China, Peru, India, Japan, Surrealism, Cubism, Impressionism, Symbolism, Op Art, Conceptual Art, Kinetic Art, Hyperrealism, Modernism, Baroque Art, Mannerism and Gothic Art.
The bulk of my historical focus in school was European history. In particular, I am very familiar with the histories of France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy and Greece.
I studied Music History while in the Escuela Nacional de Música Juan José Landaeta as a child, and explored it further since then, both in college and in my personal time.
I specialize in the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods, as well as in Ragtime; some of my reference texts include Bukofzer's "Music in the Baroque Era", Zarlino's "The Art of Counterpoint", the Norton Anthology of Western Music and Berlin's "Ragtime: A Musical and Cultural History".
My graduate paper focused on Stravinsky's "Piano-Rag Music", and aimed to point out all the ragtime elements Stravinsky used or reinterpreted in his piece. It is in the process of publication.
