Art historian Babino presents a little known facet of author and artist Güiraldes (b. Argentina 1886- d. Paris 1927) that is far away from "tradicionalism" and closer to the avant-garde movement of Europe, particularly Paris where he became friends with Latin American artists, authors and intellectuals who converged in the city during the early 20th century searching for new expression in art. Although Güiraldes' main expressive development was in literature, he practiced vernacular and primitive (guaraní) drawing and paintings.
