Biography: Emma Reyes (Bogotá, Colombia, 1919//Bordeaux, France, 2003) was an artist who travelled the world along with her drawings and paintings. Most of her legacy remains outside of Colombia. In our country, her name is mostly known because artists and people from humanities met her abroad and came back fascinated by her talent and character. Colombia´s art history still owes her a proper recognition for her work.
