Carreño began his artistic studies in his native Havana where he studied painting at the Academia de San Alejandro, Havana, Cuba from 1925 until 1926. In 1934, he studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Madrid, Spain. In 1937 he studied at the Ecole des Arts appliqués, Paris, France and that same year, at the Académie Julian, Paris, France. Beginning in the 1930's, his career began to flourish and he participated in many group shows including 1932 – "Exposición Única de Pintores y Escultores Cubanos", Lyceum, Havana, Cuba. In 1944 he took part in the " Exhibition of Modern Cuban Painters at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. Between the late 1930s and early 1940s, Carreño traveled extensively. For three years, he lived in Paris, engaging with the artists’ community in the liberal Montparnasse district. He was forced to evacuate the country when the World War II broke out in 1939 and spent the next few years in between New York and Havana. In 1942, he married the wealthy heiress Maria Luisa Gomez Mena, who provided him with professional support, organizing both studio spaces for her husband as well as introducing him to the primary players in the Cuban art industry. Although the marriage was short-lived, Mena’s effect on his career was transformative, establishing Carreño as a notable figurative painter in the American art scene. After the dissolution of their union, he spent an increasing amount of time in Cuba and eventually married Maria Luisa Bermudez in the 1950s. By sight, 25"W by 19"H.
