Exhibition catalogue of 57 works of art of Ramiro Jácome (1948-2001), member of the group "The four musketeers". Luis Corral mentor of Fundación Quito, compiled a series of oral testimonies about facts and popular characters of the city. The list of names and biographical data given to Jácome by Corral, was good enough for him to profile the "FAMOUS ANONYMOUS" that survived in the memory of the people of the suburbs and the city. The texts that accompanied the paintings written by Javier Ponce give a layer of veracity to the characters, making them more realistic.
