Painting - Oil On Streched Canvas
Oil Painting of the best Flamenco dancer that ever lived.Carmen Amaya
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carmen Amaya (November 2, 1913 � November 19, 1963) was a flamenco dancer and singer, of Romani origin, born in the Somorrostro slum of Barcelona, Spain (Vila Ol�ica nowadays). She danced from the time she was 4 years old. In 1929, she made her debut in Paris, to warm acclaims and admiration of her dancing skill. She moved to America in 1936, where she went on to act in several films that broke box office records, including the Romeo and Juliet adaptation Los Tarantos, and the short film Danzas Gitanas (Gypsy Dances).
She was invited by Franklin Roosevelt to dance in the White House in 1944, and also by Harry S. Truman in 1953.
Amaya is buried in the Cementiri del Sud-Oest on Barcelona's Montju�
