Benito Quinquela Martín (1890-1977)

Argentine painter Benito Quinquela Martín is considered the port painter-par-excellence and one of the most popular Argentine painters. His paintings of port scenes show the activity, vigor and roughness of the daily life in the port of La Boca.

Early years

His birthday could not be determined precisely as he was abandoned on March 20, 1890 at an orphanage with a note that stated "This kid has been baptized, and his name is Benito Juan Martín". From his physical appearance, the nuns who found him deduced that he should be around twenty days old; thus March 1 is regarded as his birthday.

Leonard Cohen / Fabian Perez | The Stranger Song


It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
Who said they were through with dealing
Every time you gave them shelter
I know that kind of man.
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender.

E’ vero che tutti gli uomini che conoscevi
erano giocatori che dicevano di averne abbastanza
di giocare a carte ogni volta che davi loro un riparo.
Lo conosco, quel genere di uomini.
E’ difficile tenere le mani di qualcuno
che le alza al cielo soltanto per arrendersi.
