Latinos With Disabilities Facts

In this month's edition of the AES Newsletter we'd like to highlight the accomplishments of famous Latinos with disabilities in honor of this month's Cesar Chavez Dinner on March 30, 2014 hosted by Latino Student Association.

Carlos, Prince of Asturias, also known as Don Carlos (8 July 1545 – 24 July 1568), was the eldest son and heir-apparent of King Philip II of Spain. His mother was Maria Manuela of Portugal, daughter of John III of Portugal. Carlos was mentally unstable and was imprisoned by his father in early 1568, dying after half a year of solitary confinement. His fate was a theme in Spain's Black Legend, and inspired a play by Friedrich Schiller and an opera by Giuseppe Verdi.

Maria Gutierrez Blanchard (6 March 1881 - 5 April 1932) was a Spanish painter. Blanchard was the daughter of journalist Enrique Gutierrez Cueto and Concepcion Blanchard Santisteban. Born with various disabilities, she was small in stature, hunchbacked and unable to walk. She was the cousin of Mexican artist German Cueto.

In 1903 she moved to Madrid and studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando with Fernando Alvarez de Sotomayor, Manuel Benedito and Emelio Sala. In 1909 she continued her artistic education at the Academie Vitti in Paris under Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa and Kees van Dongen. Here she discovered cubist painting, and was influenced by Jacques Lipchitz and Juan Gris. In 1914 she returned to Madrid where she had an exhibition organized by Ramon Gomez de la Serna.

In late 1916 she finally went to Paris to paint there. In 1920, she exhibited in France and Belgium. After her exhibition at the Salon des Independants in 1921, her paintings were in great demand. Due to the adverse economic situation which followed, the collectors withdrew and she was financially supported by the literature enthusiast Frank Flausch (1878 - 1926) until her death.
