Beatriz González Aranda, Colombian artist, historian, and art critic, was born in the city of Bucaramanga, capital of the department of Santander, on November 16, 1932[1]. She studied art at the Universidad de los Andes with Juan Antonio Roda and took a course in printmaking at the Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Her work is technically prolific and diverse, although her work in painting is noted, and her themes are restricted to popular images and the political and social dimensions of recent Colombian history. Since the 1980s she has carried out important research on the history of Colombian art in the 19th and 20th centuries, contributing new knowledge on figures such as José María Espinosa, Ramón Torres Méndez, Roberto Páramo, José Gabriel Tatis, Fídolo Alfonso González Camargo, and Luis Caballero Holguín, and also reconstructing the trajectory of caricature in the country. Her work has been key to the consolidation of the institutions of art in Colombia, through her leadership and advisory to several museums in Bogotá on curatorial processes, education, and acquisition. Her work has been shown in individual and collective exhibitions at the national and international level and has been the object of multiple tributes and awards.
