During the 1970s, Beatriz González once again set a precedent in the history of Colombian art by introducing new materials into her works: this time furniture and curtains. President Julio César Turbay was, at the beginning, one of the leading subjects of González’s work: "I painted Turbay in the Baseboard of Tragedy (zocalo de la tragedia) and the Baseboard of Comedy (zocalo de la comedia), works in which I wanted to say that this country moved between crime and decoration." The themes developed in her painting began to turn more and more towards Colombia's political world.[1]
