In 1984, Cundo Bermúdez completed a major commission for the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington, D.C. Titled Sueños en el jardín de las Américas, the mosaic mural comprises over 2,200 hand-painted ceramic tiles, the product of a brilliant collaboration between Bermúdez and the young ceramicist Fernando Camayd. That same year, Camayd acquired the present lot, a stunning work executed by Bermúdez at the request of José Gómez Sicre, then director of the OAS Museum. At the time Gómez Sicre was working on the publication, Art of Cuba in Exile (1987) and Ventanas de Holguín was one of the key works by the Cuban vanguard master selected for this important publication.
