  1. I like Mr. De Quesada's photography a lot. They are what you might call slices of life.

    I wonder if anyone can answer a question: I recently read the auto biography of Arthur Rubinstein. In it he often mention his manager De Quesada. Might there possibly be any connection?

  2. Hi Martin-

    Yes, there is connection. Ernesto De Quesada was my grandfather. You can read more about him here
