Unfinished Man

Rupert García, Unfinished Man, 1968. Acrylic on Canvas.

Rupert García’s painting, Unfinished Man, 1968, depicts only half of an image of a man, highlighting the racial inequality of the time. As the title suggests, the view of non-white individuals of the time was that they were inferior. García’s painting illustrates the absurdity of inequality by providing a visual representation of an individual who was considered “unfinished”.
