Benedicto Cabrera, who signs his paintings “Bencab,” always upheld the primacy of drawing over decorative color, as 1994’s “The Kiss” shows. The details are spare - if any at all, the figures fluidly delineated with a minimal sepia toned background. The embrace of a single hand is enough to convey the intimacy of the figures.
