Some of his most outstanding students were Rigoberto Lucca Irizarry (1951-) and Ramón Luis Román (1949-). Art critics describe his stroke as broad, energetic, free style and expressive. They define his paintings as reflecting life and movement. With respect to his use of color some critics point out to the liveliness and multiplicity of his tones, while others stress his sobriety and monochromatic style. His Marinas y Veleros watercolors are a witness to the passion that Irizarry had for the sea and the shore. Listings wanted.
