What is the Estate of Naúl Ojeda?
Naúl Ojeda died on June 6, 2002, in Washington, DC, two days after the opening of an exhibition of his acrylic paintings. The Estate of Naúl Ojeda is comprised of approximately 150 hand pulled woodcuts and linocuts, an assortment of figurative watercolors and acrylics, as well as abstract paintings that have not been exhibited and that were the artist’s escape from the discipline of the wood cutting. In addition, the Estate holds approximately 150 blocks of wood carved by Ojeda and approximately 1,000 negatives of photos taken in Chile during the early 1970s covering the campaign, presidency and coup d’etat of Chilean President Salvador Allende.
The Estate and this website are managed by his wife, Philomena Ojeda, in collaboration with their son, Nicolás Naúl Martín Ojeda. While Ojeda died more than a decade ago, the family has not released much of his work. They know, though, that he would want his work to be with people who appreciate and enjoy it. Prints and paintings will be available later this year. If you would like to be notified when artwork is available, please submit the form on the Contact page to provide your email.
