European Art

 Joaquín Crespo at Los Colorados battle (1893) by the Venezuelan painter Arturo Michelena  (1863-1898). With this battle General Crespo decided 1884 a civil war and became president of Venezuela.
Though nothing special, it's interesting to see that these young states in Latin America glorified their presidents and victories in the same way as in old Europe. That's mostly because artists like Michelena learned their trade at the European academies.
