La Redota – Una Historia de Artigas


In 1884, the famous painter uruguay Juan Manuel Blanes is asked to do a portrait of the hero José Artigas, about whose face I know very little of a drawing that he had suffered when he was already old, so the painter Blanes not only remains and to imagine him starting from the hero’s life story. Among the materials that it finds are notes of a certain Guzmán Larra, a former spy Spanish whom ordered to assassinate Artigas, considered by Argentines as the chief rebel who did not want to recognize the hegemony of Buenos Aires and had started the exodus, led by Artigas, to an area at the mouth of river Jujuy in the north of what today we know as Uruguay.
