Notes: Visual: Generally good condition. Blacklight: No evidence of restoration under blacklight. Notes: "Uncle Albert is the artist. His wife is in black. The mother-in-law in red. The model is Uncle Albert's extra-curricular fascination. The mother-in-law suspected hanky-panky and hired a private detective on the left, who discovered Uncle Albert and his model were secretly running away together, financed by the diamond hidden in the watermelon. The Bishop, was there to receive Uncle Albert's confession." - Gonzalo Cienfuegos Gonzalo Cienfuegos studied architecture at the Escuela de Arquitectura y Arte in Santiago where he was born in 1949. He later left for Mexico and studied graphic design, painting and sculpture at the Escuela La Esmeralda in Mexico City. He returned to Chile in 1975 and is currently a professor of art at the Universidad Catolica in Chile.
