Chavecito’s “Blue Period”

A painting by Hugo Chavez

Actually, this one’s called “The Yare Moon”. It was recently auctioned off to raise funds for the PSUV’s latest electoral campaign. Chavecito painted it while in Yare Prison after his failed coup attempt of ’92.

The caption under the barred window reads “The Mill of the Gods grinds slowly!”

I’m guessing this was the actual view from his cell. And look! There’s a guard tower, and some scraggly weeds in the yard, and those hooky concentration-camp-things that they hang barbed-wire fencing off of, too.
